Most frequent questions

Can I request a postponement of my credit card or overdraft?

No, at the moment we allow postponement of installment loan installments only (repaid by annuity installments).

Can I apply for a postponement of installments if I have not yet fully disbursed the loan and I am only paying the interest?

No, possibility of postponement of repayments concern the loans that have been fully disbursed and are in repayment phase.

If I have monthly paid insurance on my loan, will it also be deferred?

At the moment we are dealing with the insurance company and we will inform you soon. In any case, your insurance continues regardless of deferred payment.

I have a business loan with linear repayments. Is it also possible to postpone the payment of such installments and interest?

This is the so-called linear repayment. At the moment we only allow deferral of the so-called annuity payments.

I have filled out and sent the request for deferral of installments. When will you contact me?

We process requests in the order in which we received them, taking into account the deadline required for the coming repayment to be postponed. There are many clients affected by this extraordinary situation,
so we are asking you for your patience.

Can I make an extraordinary installment during the postponement period?

This cannot be done for the period of the deferred installment period. You may make an extraordinary installment after the deferral period has ended.

Can I cancel the postponement of repayment anytime and start repaying the loan like before?

Once we set the repayment deferral, it cannot be for technical reasons canceled and is valid for the agreed period. So we advise to think it through before requesting the postponement.

Will I pay a fee for the postponement?

No, we will arrange for you the repayment deferral free of charge.

What about the impact of the postponement on the loan costs? Will I pay more afterwards?

We are doing our best to support you and minimalize the impact of the situation on the costs of your loan. After postponement you will restart repaying the loan with unchanged monthly instalments and interest rate. Nevertheless due to the fact that the repayment plan will be prolonged and the interest of your loan will be calculated during grace period the total cost will be slightly higher.

Will the repayment plan be changed after due to postponement?

Yes. The repayment period will be prolonged by the duration of grace period. Additionally in order to avoid increase of  each of your monthly instalments after grace period, we may account the interests calculated during the grace period as additional last repayment.
Nevertheless you will have possibility to repay the loan partially earlier any time (in case of mortgages up to 20-25% of your loan each year) without any costs  and choose if after such partial repayment to shorten the tenor or lower the monthly installment.

If I asked for a postponement of installments for 3 months and now I am interested in postponement for 6 months, what should I do?

If you have already requested a postponement of installments, we will contact you to propose a solution. We contact clients gradually according to the timing of the installment.

Do I have to come to the branch to sign an amendment to the credit agreement?

You do not have to, we manage everything together remotely, via internet banking. We will inform you about the specific procedure.

Is it enough for the main debtor to apply for a deferral?

A: Yes 

If I request a deferral of payments by law until July 2020, can I then request another deferral or extension until October 2020?

Based on the opinion of the Czech National Bank, it is not possible to extend the deferral once entered until July at a later date. We therefore recommend that you ask for a postponement until October 2020.

At the time of deferred payments, my mortgage fixation ends. What will happen?

According to the law, the so-called fixation period is postponed by the period of postponement. Therefore, for example, if you request a deferral of payments for the period May - October (ie a total of 6 installments), the original refixation date will be automatically postponed by these 6 months. For example, if you had the original refixation date at 08/2020, your mortgage will now have a refixation at 02/2021. This refixation shift also applies if you have a refixation date after the end of the grace period. So, for example, if you have a refixation in 03/2021, you will have it in 09/2021.
