Mortgage Loans

Mortgage Loans

By mortgaging your real-estate, you qualify for the mortgage loan that enables you to provide the funds necessary for:

  • Buying home furniture;
  • Renovation;
  • Financing your business;
  • Settlement of existing obligations and loan refinancing;
  • Payment for education;
  • Travelling and vacations;
  • Other current needs;
  • Or simply because you are in a need of money due to unpredicted obligations.

In each case you will increase your assets.  
Whether it is about current expenditures or renovation, they have one thing in common - taking a loan to improve the quality of your apartment, house or your life in general.

Loan application review procedure


Once you fill in, date and sign the loan application forms and submit the necessary documents to the bank, the loan inspectors i.e. officers of UNIBank commence checking and analyzing the information submitted.  
This process lasts approximately 5 days, depending on the characteristics of each loan application.
Some loan applicants find certain loan-related issues unclear. Feel free to refer to our officer in connection with all the things you find vague and the things you should expect - THEY ARE YOUR LOAN CONSULTANTS.

The loan application is reviewed in two phases:

Phase one
During this phase, the Bank checks whether the loan applicant meets the requirements of the bank and determines the maximum loan limit as well as the repayment period.  At this phase, if necessary, a bank employee may contact you and invite you for another meeting at the bank in order to further specify some additional data regarding your loan application. You will be informed by the Bank by phone of the decision made, i.e. whether your application will be processed further. 

Phase two
During this phase, the bank performs checks of any registered encumbrance on the property serving as loan collateral. If no such encumbrances exist, the property is appraised by an Authorized Court Appraiser. The real estate appraisal costs are at the expense of the loan applicant in the first year only; in all the subsequent years, they are borne by the bank. If the results of the appraisal are positive, you will be invited by the Bank to conclude a loan contract.
