During your loan period, you might find yourself in one of the following situations:
Partial or full loan payment – you may want to settle your loan early, either partially or fully in order to reduce your monthly installment amount and/or the tenure i.e. the duration of the loan.
5-year interest rate review – If your loan has a tenure of more than five years, NBK will adjust your interest rate (either decreasing or increasing it) by not more than 2%. This will either increase or decrease your monthly installment amount, without impacting your loan maturity date (i.e. the date of your final installment).
Who is it for?
All NBK Loanholders.
What do I get?
For partial or full loan payment, you can always choose to pay back all or a portion of your loan early at any time – You don’t pay extra fees or charges for early settlement
If you partially advance your loan payment, your remaining principal balance will be decreased, as well as your remaining loan term – you will not be charged any future interest on your loan
For the 5-year interest rate review, if your loan tenure is more than 5 years, as per Central Bank of Kuwait regulations, NBK will review your loan interest every 5 years
The maximum increase or decrease in interest rate will not exceed 2% of the applicable interest rate
Depending upon the Central Bank of Kuwait rate after 5 years, your installment amount will increase or decrease – please note that the interest rate change will not impact your loan maturity, your loan term will remain the same
For example, if the current interest rate on your loan is 5.5%, and your loan was granted at 8.75%, the interest rate will be decreased at the end of 5 years to become 6.75% – as the maximum change in interest rate will not exceed 2% based on Central Bank of Kuwait regulations. In such a case where the interest rate has decreased, your installment amount will decrease as well
In the future, depending upon the Central Bank of Kuwait rate, your installment amount will increase or decrease.
