Frequently Asked Questions about loans

You can apply for a loan if you:
  • Are between the ages of 21 and 69
  • Have sufficient monthly income 
  • Live in the Netherlands  
If you have a temporary residence permit and you can afford to take out a loan, the maximum term of your loan will correspond to the term of your residence permit.
In the Netherlands, consumers are protected from taking out loans they can’t afford to repay: loans and overdue repayments are listed in the National Credit Register (Bureau Krediet Registratie). You must be able to afford repayments on your loans. When you apply for a loan, we’ll perform a credit check. This is standard procedure.
 
Positive listing
If you take out a loan, you’re assigned a positive credit listing. If you make your repayments as required, this listing won’t have any consequences for your credit rating. If you apply for a new loan, we can see from the National Credit Register whether or not you can afford to borrow money.
Yes, in that case you can also take out a personal loan with us online. We will look at your annual figures and your income tax returns for the past 2 years.

FAQ's about repaying and changing your loan

You can reduce your borrowings by making an additional repayment on your loan. This will mean your debt is lower and you’ll be done repaying it sooner. No extra charge is made for additional repayments.

Cancelling your loan won’t cost you anything extra and you can do it at any time. You do need to make sure you’ve fully repaid it first though. Simply go to Internet Banking to cancel it.    

  1. Go to ‘Self service’.  
  2. Select ‘Additional or full repayment’. 
  3. Select ‘Full repayment’.  
  4. Repay the outstanding amount using iDEAL.
 
Once you’ve fully repaid your debt, we can cancel your loan. We’ll then also cancel the registration of your loan with the Dutch Credit Registration Office (BKR). BKR will retain your details for five years after that. Over this five-year period, other banks or official bodies will be able to see in your credit history that you had this loan.   
If you don’t have an outstanding balance and your loan hasn’t yet been terminated, please call us on 0800 - 024 07 11 (free of charge).  

If you want your loan repayments to come out of a different account, just let us know.

FAQ's about the calculation of a loan

When you borrow money, you repay a fixed amount each month. These instalments include a portion of the principal (the amount of the actual loan) and interest, together called repayments. The amount of your repayments depends on the amount you borrow and the term of your loan. How much interest you pay each month depends on your personal situation, for example your income, your family situation and whether you own your home or rent it. If you would like to know exactly how much a loan will cost you each month, you can calculate your loan here.

Your maximum loan is calculated by looking closely at your income and your expenses, for example, your:    

  • income   
  • family situation. For example, do you have children?   
  • housing expenses. What is your monthly rent or mortgage payment?    
  • other financial obligations. Do you pay maintenance? Do you have any other loans? 
Based on such information and other factors, we estimate your credit limit.  
Your monthly repayments include a portion of the principal (the amount of the actual loan) and interest. Calculate how much you can borrow and see what your monthly repayments will be right away.
