Fees are higher and revenues that us demand for its concession, therefore higher. To achieve the fixed mortgage for example, the hipotecantes net monthly salary should be around the 3,770 euros! Another financial disadvantage that has fixed interest rate mortgage loan comes when changing mortgage. Let us imagine that the euribor takes 4 years below 2% and decided to stop paying a 5% to be subrogated to a variable mortgage. If not we have well informed commissions which we signed in time to go to the notary, can bring us a nasty surprise: If the mortgage was signed before December 9, 2007 maximum subrogation rake is 2.5%.
