The Government actively promotes barrier-free housing and supports corresponding conversions through low-interest WKF loans . Often, the idea of rebuilding your own four walls to suit your age does not come at the age of forty if you buy the house, but only at an advanced age.
The Residential Property Credit Directive, which has been in force since March 2016, originally provided that mortgage lending must be reduced during statistical life expectancy. With this previous regulation, however, the legislature has gone far beyond the demands of the EU.
The EU only demanded the proper repatriation of the loan. Whether this is done by the borrower or his heirs was never up for discussion.

Anyone who wants to finance 200,000 USD with a lending rate of two percent per annum at the age of 50 and wishes to repay them by the age of 65 must raise a monthly rate of 1,287 USD.
