Housing association loan

A loan for housing associations allows housing associations to lower their maintenance costs by renovating the apartment building and increasing its energy efficiency.

A loan for housing associations is intended to be used for renovating apartment buildings and improving their general energy efficiency.

For that purpose, Nordea offers even lower interest rates and longer repayment periods than those of ordinary loans.
