What is a mortgage loan for immovable property?
Do you have plans to build or do you want to buy or build a house or apartment? With a 'mortgage loan for immovable property', you can borrow a share of the money you'll need. This loan is mostly covered by a mortgage and/or a power of attorney to create a mortgage.
You can apply to KBC for a mortgage loan only if you live in Belgium and receive your principal income in euros.

How much can you borrow?
The amount you can borrow depends on three factors:
- How much you can pay back
A good rule of thumb: the total of your monthly credit obligations may not be higher than 40% of the monthly net household income.
- The cost of your home
and the amount that you have already saved
You can never borrow more than the total cost of your home. KBC also expects you to finance part of the project with your own funds.
guarantees that you can give the bank
KBC requests collateral to cover themselves against the risk that you no longer repay your loan. A mortgage is usually established on the property. This gives the bank the right to sell the immovable property if you can no longer meet your credit obligations.
Which term or interest rate should you choose?
What types of insurance are useful?
We advise you to take out the following types of insurance:
Loan Balance Insurance
This type of insurance is a way of protecting your family if you or
your partner die during the term of the loan. If you take out loan
balance insurance, you will not have to worry whether your family
would be able to pay off the loan should you die.
