Indexed, Non-Indexed or Hybrid Mortgage

How do our mortgages differ?



Hybrid Mortgage

The payments are initially higher but you can pay off your mortgage at a quicker rate.

Payments are initially lower because part of the financing costs are added to the principal amount but paid in full during the loan period.

A hybrid mortgage is both indexed and non-indexed. You decide the ratio and enjoy the benefits of both.

Two types of mort­gages, with a variable rate or fixed rate for a 3-5 year period

Two types of mort­gages, with a variable rate or fixed rate, the interest rate is reviewed every 5 years.

You can mix and match a Hybrid Mortgage so that part of the loan has a fixed rate and part of it has a variable rate.

The payments are initially higher

The payments are initially lower

You can divide the loan amount into two or more loan types. This gives you the option of creating an indexed, non-indexed ratio to suit your needs.

It is possible to fix the interest rate on non-indexed mortgages for 3 or 5 years with a so-called term change.

Indexation is like interest that is added to the principal of the loan.

With a mixed mortgage, it is therefore possible to spread interest rate risk and choose both variable and temporary fixed interest rates.

Changing to fixed rate

The payments are initially higher but you can pay your mortgage off sooner with a Non-Indexed Mortgage.

You can contact us if you wish to change your mortgage loan from variable interest rate to fixed interest rate for non-indexed loans.
Our fixed rate mortgage offers a fixed interest rate for the first 3-5 years, which means that payments remain stable. The interest rate becomes variable once the fixed period ends. You will have to pay a fee if you pay off the mortgage during the fixed rate period.

Fixed rate or variable rate?

Which should you choose? Have a look at the differences between the two. It's actually much simpler than you thought.

Fixed rate

Variable rate

Payments are stable

Payments vary according to the interest rate each time

Fixed interest rates for Non-In­dexed Mort­gage is a 3-5 year period. Interest rate becomes variable once fixed rate period is complete.

Variable interest rates for Non-In­dexed Mort­gage depend on the bank's financing costs and market conditions

Fixed interest rate for Indexed Mort­gages is reviewed every 5 years

Variable interest rate for Indexed Mort­gages: Interest rates depend on the bank's financing costs and market conditions

Fixed rate mortgages charge a prepayment fee if the amount is paid during the fixed rate period. You can pay an additional ISK 1 million towards your fixed rate mortgage every year without paying a fee

Non-indexed loans are converted to variable interest rate loans, once the fixed interest period ends, and the prepayment fee is waived. 

Lend­ing period and fees

We provide a basic loan of up to 70% of the real estate appraisal. Borrowers are also offered to take out additional loans up to 80% of the purchase price of residential housing. Special rules apply for loans in excess of 75 m.ISK.
