What is the maximum amount of credit that the bank will extend?

Basic lending conditions

Requirements for the borrower

Loans are available to adult nationals of the Republic of Lithuania and individuals with a permit of permanent residence in Lithuania who are receiving permanent income, in particular:

  • wages
  • other regular income received under author's agreements, from business activity, lease and otherwise supported by relevant documentation

The total amount of monthly instalments paid to various credit institutions should not exceed 40 per cent of your total monthly net income.

You have to cover at least 15 per cent of the budget of the financed project with your own (not borrowed) money.

Amount and maturity

The amount and maturity of the loan depend on whether or not this will be your primary residence.

If you are borrowing: The loan amount may be: Loan maturity:
for housing which is your primary residence up to 85 per cent of the market value or price (whichever is lower) of purchased housing subject to taking out a mortgage against it up to 30 years (for home refurbishment  up to 20 years)
for housing which is not your primary residence, also for a homestead, summer house or other similar properties up to 60 per cent of the market value or price (whichever is lower) of purchased housing subject to taking out a mortgage against it up to 25 years (for home refurbishment  up to 20 years)

The loan amount also depends on the assessment of the family’s  financial capacity to repay the loan.

Currency

Loans are available in euros.

Interest

When signing a loan agreement, you may select the interest rate: variable or fixed.

Variable interest may be of two types:

  • fluctuates within the entire loan period. It includes the bank margin individually approved for you and 3, 6 or12 month EURIBOR (Euro Interbank Offered Rate) selected by you.  Variable interest portion EURIBOR will be fixed for the first time on the drawdown date of the first loan portion and will be effective until the following interest rate adjustment date. On other interest rate adjustment dates, the variable interest portion will be newly fixed.  The variable interest portion will be fixed based on EURIBOR valid two business days ago. If the value was negative, it will be considered that the variable interest portion is zero.
  • fixed for the initial period and after its expiry will fluctuate within the remaining loan period. It includes the interest rate individually approved for you on the loan agreement signature date, which is effective within the initial period of 2, 3, 5 or 10 years selected by you, and after its expiry, the variable interest portion fluctuates within the remaining loan period as specified above

Fixed interest rate may be approved, if your loan period does not exceed 10 years. Fixed interest rate selected by you will be approved for the entire credit period.

Interest will accrue on the outstanding loan, and we will calculate it considering that a year consists of 360 days.

Both a new fixed and variable interest will be determined depending on the situation in the lending market, the loan amount maturity, assessment of your financial potential, individual credit risk, and also on the number and type of services provided to you by SEB Bank.

Securities

Repayment of a mortgage loan is usually secured by taking out a mortgage against housing which is being purchased, repaired, built or reconstructed:

Loan repayment

Once the bank has disbursed the funds of the loan, your instalments will be debited from your chosen account on the agreed payment dates. The first instalment is interest only.

Repayment methods

Linear method Annuity method
The principal is divided into equal portions, which are paid every month. Interest accrued on the outstanding loan portion for the actual number of days will be added to it (the lower the outstanding loan, the lower interest will accrue on it). So over the entire term of the agreement the monthly instalments are gradually decreasing. The same amount of instalments is paid every month, consisting of the principal and interest. At first interest comprises the larger part of the instalment. It gradually decreases while the principal is increasing, but the amount of the monthly instalment does not change. In calculating the instalment amounts, it will be considered that a year consists of 360 days.
Example of the composite parts of a credit instalment and their change in both cases

If you can afford higher instalments from the beginning, it is worth choosing the linear method because the amount of interest paid will be lower over the whole term.

Grace period

If you are facing an emergency, you can file us a request to postpone payment o instalments without changing the final loan maturity date. During the grace period only interest is payable.

Emergency: Grace period:
you lose job up to 6 months
your income drops  up to 6 months
family loses breadwinner (spouse) up to 6 months
you become ill or have an accident which has kept you off work for more than 2 months up to 6 months or longer (subject to specific circumstances)
childbirth
  • up to 12 months if the child is raised by a single parent
  • up to 6 months if the child is raised by both parents
aftermath of fire or other natural disasters up to 6 months
you start studying up to 3 months
divorce up to 3 months
in case of compulsory initial military service within the entire period of compulsory military service

Borrowing is always associated with the risk of being unable to fulfil your assumed obligations properly and in due time, so before you decide to take out a loan, consider this risk carefully.

Use the home loan calculator to calculate a loan instalment that you could pay the bank every month without difficulty and consider the risk of decreased income. We also recommend considering the risk of increased instalments related to a rise in the interest rate and the risk of borrowing in a foreign currency.

According to the Responsible Lending Regulations of the Bank of Lithuania, we will provide you with instalment samples and other information related to concluding a loan agreement before signing the loan agreement. Please compare the different offers and make an informed decision.

Please note that you need to take out a mortgage against property to secure repayment of the loan. If the assumed financial liabilities are not fulfilled, there occurs a risk to lose title to the property.

The bank has the right to refuse giving out a loan.

Uninsured Collateral Administration Fee (applied if a collateral is a residential real estate object) EUR 20.00 per month

Typical example for calculating annual percentage rate

If a loan of EUR 50,000 secured by real estate collateral is granted for the period of 25 years and 300 loan instalments based on the annuity method will be made, the total amount to be paid by such borrower will make EUR 69,293.76, monthly instalment – EUR 225.24. The annual percentage rate will make 2,82 per cent. Annual percentage rate showing the total cost of a loan is calculated by including the below instalments made within the entire loan period:

  • 2,50 per cent variable interest
  • EUR 250 agreement fee and one-off transfer fee of EUR 5
  • EUR 31.28 mortgage (pledge) registration fee
  • EUR 0.70 per month minimum fee for main banking services
  • EUR 49 dwelling insurance annual premium

Note. Property valuation costs are not included.

Annual percentage rate and the total amount to be paid by the borrower are calculated considering that the loan is disbursed on the agreement signature date and that the terms of the agreement, interest rate and fees do not change within the entire loan period, and the terms and conditions of the agreement are timely implemented. If you fail to fulfil or unduly fulfil the terms of the loan agreement, the risk exists that you may be deprived of the ownership right to the pledged real estate. The mortgaged real estate must be insured in favour of the bank during the entire loan period.
