The National Bank of Serbia (NBS) has reached the decision enabling employees in the security sector who decide to purchase an apartment through a loan to have up to 90% of the value of the loan financed by banks in Serbia.

– In line with the announced decision of the Government to finance the construction of apartments for certain categories of natural persons, above all those considered to be socially vulnerable and employed in the security sector, we reached the decision on December 18 whereby we enabled the loan participation to be lower than usual, allowing banks to finance not 80%, but 90% of the loan – NBS Governor Jorgovanka Tabakovic says.

As Tabakovic says, this kind of measure is not unusual even in the European Union.

– They all tend to support categories the security of which they want to finance in the way we have done as well. We wanted to make it easier for the Government and to prepare banks so that they would support such a decision as well – Tabakovic stated.
