Full-Repayment Loan

(Volltilgerdarlehen)

A Full-Repayment loan is a loan with a fixed interest rate over the entire term where the mortgage is completely paid back by the end of the fixed interest period. This means that the annual repayment rate (Tilgung) is often higher, at least 3 percent. This brings a higher certainty, as you will not have any remaining loan balance to refinance at the end of your fixed interest period.
