  • Blended Rate
  • Rate consisting of 12-month Euribor and spread.

    This rate is indexed to Euribor, so changes every 12 months.

    Repayment follows Euribor fluctuations. Thus, whenever Euribor rises, repayment rises and whenever Euribor falls, repayment falls, in line with the economic backdrop at all times.

    Variable rate:

    Fluctuations in the interest rate may result in an increase in the amount due.
    The interest rate applied may record negative values as a result of changes in its reference rate.

    The blended rate is composed of a fixed rate (for a period of 2 to 30 years), followed by a variable rate indexed to the 12-month Euribor.

    The fixed rate is composed of a reference rate, disclosed daily and calculated by NOVO BANCO, plus the spread.

    You cannot change to a variable rate during the term of the fixed rate.

    For your housing loan

    For life or for home

    Home Insurance

    • Insures the property that the Bank is going to mortgage. This insurance has 4 types of cover: building, contents, comprehensive (building + contents) or construction (for self-built homes). The sum of the insurance premium is calculated based on the number of rooms, the required coverage and the geographical location of the property to be insured.

    Life Insurance

    • The premium for this insurance is calculated, inter alia, based on the age of the housing credit holders, the loan amount and the risk the operation entails, covering situations of death and absolute and permanent disability. The sum of the insurance premium is defined by the Insurance Company with which the customer takes out the insurance.

    What are the rates?

    • Blended Rate - For loans taken out under a blended interest rate, the parties agree that the loan agreement has a period in which the rate is fixed, followed by a period in which the rate is variable. For example, a 30-year housing loan may have a fixed rate for the first 5 years and a variable rate, indexed to Euribor, for the remaining 25 years. The following fixed rates are available:
      • Fixed rate from 2 to 5 years, 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 years.

    • Variable Rate - For housing loan agreements with a variable interest rate, the interest rate results from the sum of the reference rate and the spread:
      • Reference rate (benchmark interest rate) - usually corresponds to Euribor (European Interbank Offered Rate), which is the reference rate.
      • SPREAD - The interest rate component that is in addition to the reference rate. The spread is defined by the Bank, taking into account the customer's credit risk, the ratio between the loan amount and the property value (loan-to-value), and the cost of financing. The Bank does not review the value of the reference rate at a frequency other than the index period (12-month Euribor).

    • ANR - The annual nominal interest rate (ANR) represents the cost associated with interest on the loan.

    • APR - The annual percentage rate (APR) represents the effective cost of the loan, which takes into account a set of expenses inherent to the housing loan. This rate reflects the periodicity of payments and all recurring charges relating to the loan, namely repayment of the capital, remuneration interest and fees and expenses related to the loan (life insurance and multi-risk housing insurance premiums, fees for opening proceedings and evaluation costs, current account maintenance fee, credit usage stamp tax loan and loan formalization costs).
