The amount 'costs for the buyer' can be quite high. How are you going to finance this? Do you want to co- finance the costs with your mortgage for the home or do you take out a consumer credit ? What are the possibilities?

Co-financing with a mortgage

You can take out a mortgage for 101% until the end of 2017; As of 2018, only a mortgage of up to 100% is possible. This means that you can no longer co-finance the costs for the buyer. If you apply for a mortgage in 2017, but you do not receive the final mortgage offer until 2018, the new, more stringent rules will apply to you and no longer the rules of 2017.

Co-financing a bathroom or kitchen with your mortgage will also be more difficult. Because not only has the maximum mortgage been lowered, but stricter rules also apply to the assessment of your income. More and more consumers will turn to consumer credit in addition to their mortgage to finance a kitchen or bathroom.

Get a loan

Due to the decrease in the maximum mortgage amount, more and more consumers are financing the additional and additional costs that you will encounter when you buy a house with a loan. You can opt for a personal loan or a revolving credit. In most cases, the security of a personal loan is chosen where the interest and term are fixed and you pay the same costs every month.

Taking out a personal loan for a renovation to your main home has another advantage: the interest costs are tax deductible. This is not the case with a revolving credit, a variable loan form.

An advantage of a loan compared to a mortgage is that you can make interim repayments on the loan without penalty. Do you have a financial windfall? Then you make extra repayments so that the total loan amount becomes smaller or you shorten the term so that you are debt-free sooner.
