Principle and conditions
The family loan is only available to young married couples to help them upgrade and equip an apartment.
It is available to couples where at least one partner is of Monegasque nationality.
This loan application can be made from 3 months before the marriage and up to five years after.
The family loan can be extended for five years, after consultation with the Family Support Commission. The loan can only be extended once.
The application for extension should be made to the Department of Social Welfare and Social Services in the 4th year of marriage.
To receive the loan your income must be neither above a certain limit nor below a certain threshold (as calculated by the Department of Social Welfare and Social Services).
Before any payments are made an inspection will be carried out, at the home of the couple, by the Business Development Agency.
The payments will be made directly by the Public Treasury to vendors, judicial officers, contractors or suppliers.
A direct advance of a maximum limit of 20% of the total level of the loan may be approved.
The couple are jointly and severally liable for the repayment of the loan.
The loan period is 10 years at a rate of 3% with deferred reimbursement of 24 months.
Early repayment 6 months before the end of the loan period of all instalments entitles the couple to a 10% reduction in the total amount of repayments.
