It envisages converting the remaining part of the debt of the loan into euros, and reducing the amount obtained through that conversion by 38 percent, the government has nnounced.

With this bill, approximately 16,800 citizens who have housing loans in Swiss francs will be able to solve this financial problem, regardless of the amount of debt.

It is envisaged that the interest rate cannot be higher than 3.4 percent plus a three-month or six-month EURIBOR, and that the fixed interest rate cannot be higher than four percent.

Within 30 days from the date of entry into force of this law, the bank is obliged to submit to the loan user a bid for the conclusion of the contract. If the user accepts that the conversion of the housing loan be carried out in accordance with this law, the user is obliged to notify the bank of his decision within 30 days from the date of receipt of the documents and conclude the contract on conversion with the bank.
