Why should I refinance?

With refinancing, you take out a new mortgage to pay off mortgage loans.

Refinancing can come in handy if market conditions have changed, for example, if interest rates have dropped since you originally borrowed or if you might want to lower your monthly payment.

  • We lend up to 70% of the rateable or property value when you refinance.
  • If the property value is higher than the rateable value, we take the rateable value to consideration.
  • The loans can be indexed, non-indexed or mixed.
  • It is good to obtain information on whether the loan to be paid is subject to a prepayment fee
  • The cost of refinancing a current Íslandsbánki mortgage is ISK 59,000
  • Other costs are according to the price table at any given time
