Handelsbanken is cutting the calculation interest rate used in the assessment of mortgage loan applications to 6 per cent. The reduction is being implemented in response to changes in the overall interest environment.

“The calculation interest rate is a key part of our assessment of a customer’s long-term repayment capacity.  Following this reduction, our assessments will more accurately reflect the current interest environment, and will help more people to take their first steps on to the property ladder and buy their dream home. Of course, this change will not compromise the care and attention we show to our customers, as it allows us to maintain healthy margins in our calculations,” says David Haqvinsson, Chief Executive of Stadshypotek.

This change is effective as of today, 1 June.
