BULGARIAN PROPERTIES knows in details the terms of mortgage lending which the Bulgarian banks currently offer. We will be happy to help you get a mortgage from a Bulgarian bank. Our services are fully free of charge and we will coordinate the whole process.

What types of properties you can get a mortgage for?

In recent years the banks have introduced stricter requirements regarding mortgage loans and have increased criteria towards their clients. A main requirement of the banks is the property to be finished (with Act 15 or Act 16). Financing in an earlier stage is not possible. The location of the property is also very important. Properties in the big cities are quite attractive both to investors and banks which means there is a greater chance to receive a loan for such property.

Compared to previous periods the LTV percentage has decreased. Currently finance up to 60% of the propertys price. There is a requirement regarding the amount of the monthly payments of the loan with respect to the borrowers income.

For more information and advice regarding a specific property you can contact us and we will be glad to find out the details for you and provide you with accurate information and guidance.
