The most important aspect is that a wide range of consumers have access to a selected home loan, including those receiving a Family Home Improvement Discount (CSOK).
In addition, MNB certification is only granted to home loan products that are admissible under simple administration without hidden costs and tying. And the product must ensure that the payment obligation can be calculated in the long term.
