Several solutions are available to households to renegotiate their credit:
– Please contact their bank and try to negotiate a more favorable rate
– To compete with various agencies to obtain better conditions
– Applying for a mortgage broker who has the mission to offer the best conditions for his client.

Through a broker, usually in 48 hours an agreement is reached and the process is completed in about a month.

2. Massive recurrence rates vary

Chatel law that strengthened the legislation around the floating rate will allow them to recur fairly massive. Indeed, the gap between variable rates and fixed rates can reach 150 basis points within the same bank. Depending on its level of indebtedness, the borrower will often be unique opportunity to purchase a floating rate loan for funding. But the fact of subscribing to a variable rate may be quite positive in that the rate is capped between 1 and 2.

However, the number of requests for redemption of funds is such that the selection is severe. In general, the new debt should not exceed 30 to 35% maximum household income (including rent possible).
