The ING Mortgage Loan is a long-term loan taken out to finance the purchase of a property.
The ING Mortgage Loan is intended for all individuals who normally reside in Belgium and who would like to finance a project involving property for mainly personal purposes.
You have signed the deed of sale with the notary and your loan is officially granted. You can now manage particular aspects of the mortgage loan directly in Home’Bank:
- Release a tranche of capital. Do you need access to funds to build or renovate your home? Scan your invoices or certificates, and then go to the "My loans" section of Home’Bank to send these to us. If everything is in order, the money will be paid into your account as soon as possible.
- Request certificates and documentation. Do you need a copy of your tax certificate, redemption table, offer letter or basic certificate? Do you need a document to be completed by ING, or to request a signed document from the bank? Log in to Home’Bank and submit your request in a few clicks!
- Amend the details of your loan. Changing the number of the bank account designated for your mortgage repayments is very simple in Home’Bank.

It is always up to you to choose the formula that is right for you, meaning you have the choice of a fixed or variable rate of interest, as well as how to make the capital repayments.
Fixed rate: The interest rate remains the same for the duration of your mortgage loan. When you choose this option, you are protected from any unpleasant surprises because your monthly repayments remain the same throughout the loan term.
Variable rate: With variable rate mortgage deals, the rate is reviewed after a given period and altered where necessary. However, you are still protected from excessive rate fluctuations. Whatever happens, the interest rate will vary, but only within a predetermined fluctuation range.
Annual variability (1+1+1) Cap 3: The interest rate may be adjusted every year. It cannot rise by more than 3% and it may fall as low as 0%. What's more, you are protected against any excessive rate fluctuations. Rates cannot increase by more than 1% at the first review, 2% at the second and 3% at the third.
These adjustments are always calculated in relation to the initial interest rate. The revised interest rate cannot ever rise to a figure more than double the initial rate. For example, if your initial interest rate was set at 2.5%, then this rate will never exceed 5%.
- Five-year variability (5+5+5) +5/-5: The interest rate may be adjusted every five years. Both the upper and lower interest rate fluctuation thresholds are set at 5%. The interest rate can fall as low as 0%.
First variability after 10 years and 5-year variability thereafter (10+5+5): The interest rate is revised for the first time after 10 years and thereafter every 5 years. There are two options:
- You opt for a rate that cannot rise or fall by more than 5% (with a minimum rate of 0%).
- You choose a rate that can increase by a maximum of 2% and can drop as low as 0%.

Which capital repayment method?
Various different formulae exist to allow you to repay your mortgage loan capital:
- Consecutive monthly payments: You repay the same overall amount every month. The share of this payment made up of interest falls progressively, whereas the capital share rises over time.
- Regular capital amortisation: Every month, you repay the same amount of capital, which means that your monthly repayment amount falls over time.
- Repayment of the entire capital sum at the end of the loan.

Amount: The maximum amount you can borrow depends on the value of the property and your repayment capacity.
- Are you buying a house? ING releases the loan amount directly when the deed is signed.
- Are you building or renovating a property? In this case, ING makes the loan available in tranches of EUR 2,500 or more, as the works progress, based on invoices and/or documentary proof.

Term: The repayment period of a mortgage loan can last up to 30 years. The duration depends on your requirements and the formula you choose.
Fees: Purchasing a house, apartment or plot of land with a mortgage loan gives rise to charges. An initial overview of these is given here. To find out the actual cost of purchasing your home, contact your ING liaison officer who can provide you with an estimate.
Which guarantees and securities are attached to the loan? A mortgage loan is bound by guarantees required by law, such as:
- a lien
- a notarised mandate
- a pledge to confer a lien, which is generally taken out in relation to the property linked to your mortgage loan.
The guarantee(s) that apply to your particular mortgage loan will be decided based on your personal situation, with the possibility of combining all three.
Possible fiscal advantages: In some circumstances, the costs associated with your mortgage loan can give rise to tax concessions. These will depend in particular on the region in which your property is located.
You can download documents and certificates related to your loan, as well as other tax certificates, via Home'Bank.
