  • What options are there regarding interest rates?

    For all personal loans you can only select a floating interest rate.  No fixed rate option is available.

    For floating rate loans, the interest rate can be changed at any time (upward or downward) depending on base rate changes. The variable interest rate consists of the base plus margin. Every time the total interest rate changes, your loan installment will also change.

    What are the initial fees?

    Some loans may bear initial fees, payable upon the granting of the loan.

    Initial bank fees

    • Arrangement fees: these relate to the Bank’s costs for preparing and evaluating your application.
    • Documentation fees: a fixed charge for the preparation of loan documents, the charge is determined by the loan amount.

     Government fees

    These fees are regulated by law as follows:

    • Mortgage registration fees paid to the Land Registry.
    • Fees relating to stamping the loan documents and paid to the Commissioner of Taxation.
    • Fees paid to the Land Registry in cases where the transfer of property from one owner to another is necessary.

     

    Fees paid to third parties

    These are fees related to valuations carried out on behalf of the Bank by approved valuers for mortgaged property, or fees related to life and/or home insurance.

    What do I need to know about loan installment payments?

    • You can provide instructions in writing, so that your installment is paid automatically from your current account.
    • You can pay your installments as determined by the terms of your loan. Please make sure to designate a date that is convenient for you. Should this date change, you need to promptly  contact your personal banker.
    • Delayed installment payments incur additional costs, increasing the cost of your loan.
    • Should your financial circumstances change and you are unable to keep up with installment payments per the terms of your contract, please get in touch promptly with your personal banker in order to agree a new repayment schedule adapted to your new circumstances.

     

    What happens if I pay off my loan/installments early?

    Where a loan is paid off early, or installments are paid early in relation to the agreed schedule, the Bank will charge costs depending on the type of interest rate and the amount that was paid off early.

    What is the Annual Percentage Rate (APR)?

    The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is the total cost of the loan to the consumer, expressed as an annual percentage on the loan amount. The APR includes all loan expenses paid by the client to either the Bank or to third parties (e.g. government fees, valuation expenses, insurance etc).

    The APR is considered to be the best tool as it includes all loan expenses. It helps you form a complete picture and to compare the Bank’s schemes with the schemes of other banks.

    Applications for QuickLoan products are assessed electronically based on your creditworthiness, repayment ability and the Bank’s credit policy as applicable from time to time.

    The decision for the approval or rejection of the online credit application will be reached by processing your personal data using solely automated means (including profiling), without human involvement, and only after we have your explicit consent to do so.

    Profiling under this procedure involves the automated processing of your personal data to analyze, evaluate and predict your creditworthiness and ability to repay the facility.

    The Bank will use only the necessary information that will allow the assessment of your creditworthiness and repayment ability and to make responsible, fair and informed lending decisions.

    The Bank will use information that you provide, as well as information derived from the Bank’s internal sources (that is your personal and contact details, employment, income, expenses, family structure, spending habits, conduct on other accounts / facilities / guarantees / securities, payment arrears on other accounts / facilities, judgement debts, whether your personal data has been verified and updates for anti-money laundering purposes) and external sources (that is bankruptcy records, i.e. arrears, non-performing facilities and judgement debts at other banks from Artemis Credit Bureau).

    The application may also be automatically referred to the Bank for further evaluation by an officer.

    Do I have the right to object to the automated decision?

    Yes, you have the right to request re-examination of the application by a Bank’s officer by contacting your servicing Branch. 

    Can I withdraw from the application process at any time before submitting it or after a decision is reached by the Bank?

    You can withdraw your application at any time. If you have entered any information, you have the choice to save it and resume with the application at a later stage or discard it. If you choose to discard it, the information you entered will not be saved. Your application will be automatically discarded if you remain inactive for 15 days.

    If a decision is reached by the Bank, you can still withdraw your application at any time before entering into a contract for the granting of the facility. This does not affect your other rights regarding the processing of your personal data.

    You can also withdraw from the contract within a specified timeframe and subject to certain conditions. More information on your right to withdraw from the contract will be provided in the pre-contractual information for the credit facility which will be made available to you, as well as in the agreement for the granting of the facility.
