Setting yourself up in your own home is a big step in anyone’s life. Holm’s home loan is a targeted loan aimed at private borrowers and secured with collateral. It’s designed for either buying, building, extending, reconstructing or renovating a home. The loan can cover up to 85% of the value of the property. If you have additional collateral to offer, no self-financing is needed. You can also apply for a loan with a co-applicant. In cooperation with KredEx (which is now known as the Estonian Business and Innovation Agency), we can offer you a loan to buy a home with up to 10% self-financing. For the full terms and conditions, click here.

You can apply for a home loan on Holm’s self-service site. You don’t need a valuation report when applying, but you will need to submit one before signing your contract. Once you’ve submitted your application, one of our specialists will get in touch with you.

In order to comply with the due diligence obligation assigned to us as a bank, we ask you to identify yourself by video in the Veriff OÜ environment before signing the agreement.. In order to identify yourself, you need an internet-connected device with a working camera. Have your identity document at hand and follow the step-by-step instructions on the screen.

Frequently asked questions

Holm Bank’s home loan is a targeted loan aimed at private borrowers and secured with collateral. You can choose between payment schedules and a repayment period of up to 30 years. The interest rate on the loan is linked to EURIBOR.
You can apply on Holm’s self-service site, where in addition to asking you how much you want to borrow, we will also request data to help us fulfil the bank’s due diligence obligations and follow the principles of responsible lending. Once you’ve submitted your application, one of our specialists will take a look at it and get in touch with you. If your application is approved, the specialist will make you an offer. If you accept it, we’ll then prepare the loan contract and other documents.
The notarial transaction required for a mortgage to be set will be arranged by the bank. The loan amount is usually paid out within three banking days of all the related contracts being entered into.
The amount of the loan depends on your regular income, any other financial obligations you have and the condition and location of the real estate offered as collateral.
As a rule, we can offer loans of up to 85% of the value of the property, or up to 90% if you decide to get a KredEx (now the Estonian Business and Innovation Agency) guarantee – on condition that your repayments on any credit product you currently use and the planned home loan payments combined don’t exceed 50% of your regular monthly income. If you obtain a KredEx guarantee, the amount of self-financing may be as low as 10%, but a fee is charged on the amount being guaranteed. If you have additional collateral to offer, you might not have to provide any self-financing at all. The term of your loan can be up to 30 years.
The bank analyses your creditworthiness, taking into account your income and financial obligations, plus the information provided on the application form and collected by the bank. As a responsible lender, Holm wants to make sure that potential borrowers will be capable of fulfilling the conditions of their loan.
We tend to make our initial offer the next working day, but how quickly we get through the pre-contract negotiations depends on how quickly information moves between us. We’ll do our best to meet your needs and expectations.
We offer either an annuity schedule or a schedule with equal principal payments.
With an annuity schedule, your payments and interest are divided up in equal parts throughout the term of the loan. Your payments may change due to fluctuations in EURIBOR.
In a schedule with equal principal payments, your payments are higher at the start of the loan period and lower towards the end, because the bank calculates interest on the balance of the loan.
You can avoid self-financing by offering additional collateral. We generally only accept first-ranking mortgages as collateral. However, a lower-ranking mortgage may be accepted if all of the higher-ranking mortgages were established for the benefit of Holm Bank or the state.
When you enter into a home loan contract, keep in mind that you’ll need to cover the cost of having the property you’re using as collateral valued and of establishing the mortgage at a notary’s office, and pay the contract fee. On agreement with the bank, the latter two can be financed as part of the loan amount.
You can make use of a KredEx (now the Estonian Business and Innovation Agency) guarantee on the conditions set out here.
If it seems likely that you’ll struggle to make your payments, contact us as soon as possible so that we can come up with a workaround together. We may be able to grant you a grace period or extend the term of your contract. In any case, it is sensible to cooperate with the bank to find the best solution.
Repaying your loan in full ahead of time is free of charge provided you let us know three months in advance. If you can’t or don’t want to wait that long, you’ll need to pay the following three months’ interest in accordance with our price list.
