The different credits

France is a country where the borrower enjoys strict protection from the public authorities, unlike the Anglo-Saxon countries such as the United States. The crisis of 2008 regarding “Subprimes” came – if need be – remind us. Review of the different credits and their regulations.

What are the different forms of credit in France

What are the different forms of credit in France

There are different classifications of loans. Economists in particular often talk about borrowing in the short, medium and long term. This classification by duration brings no useful light to our senses and we prefer the one which consists in classifying the different loans according to their destination.

The different credits allocated

The loans allocated are those whose destination is perfectly identified at the time of the constitution of the file.

The mortgage

The mortgage is the main credit affected. Its purpose may be only the acquisition of real property, whether it is a dwelling as a principal residence, the purchase of a second home or a rental investment in the home. old or in the context of a tax exemption operation such as the Borloo law.

Consumer loan

Among the various consumer credits, some are said to be affected. This is the case of auto loans. The borrower subscribes for a loan in order to acquire a perfectly identified consumer good as to its use and amount.

Other loans fall within this framework, even if the borrower does not tell the bank what it is for. The protection is identical and all benefit from the Consumer Code.

Permanent credit

This is a special consumer loan. Indeed, the permanent credit allows to benefit from a credit line refundable only in case of use. Highly criticized by consumer associations, it was the subject of enhanced protection during the Lagarde Act on consumer credit.

Business credit

Professional credit is a business loan. It can serve both the individual enterprise, ie the craftsman, the trader or the liberal profession as the SME-SMI. The needs covered by this type of financing are multiple. Indeed, the professional loan can cover both real estate needs such as the purchase of business premises or offices, as well as equipment.

Even if the financial crisis makes access to credit more difficult, companies can also obtain a loan to cover cash requirements.

Real estate loan


This question comes up regularly in various credit forums. But getting a real estate loan when you’re in a cdd or when you’re intermittent is entirely possible if you respect a certain number of conditions, even if a contract on a permanent contract makes it easier to borrow .

I am on a fixed term, can I get a mortgage?

I am on a fixed term, can I get a mortgage?

If you are in a cdd and have been working for about ten years, the situation will worry the banker less than if you have just entered the workforce and this is your first job.

In the case of co-borrowers, if one member of the couple has a contract of employment in CDI, the situation may only be reinforced.

Other criteria for analysis

The study of a credit file leads the banker to analyze a certain number of criteria. It will be all the more intransigent that you have a precarious situation with a fixed term contract or an interim contract.

The personal contribution

The first criterion of analysis, the personal contribution proves to the banker that you knew how to save. Moreover, to lend beyond the value of the real estate, ie to finance in addition the notary fees does not enchant the banker. This situation is even more troublesome if you do not have a stable situation and you ask for a mortgage when you are in cdd.

However, it is easy for banks to understand that a young worker has not had the years to build capital. It will therefore be more flexible for a purchase for a primo accedant.

Bank statements

When the job situation is not stabilized, bank statements can prove to your banker that you know how to manage your budget. Otherwise, you will have trouble convincing the bank that it takes no risk to lend you

The debt ratio

Again if you apply for a mortgage with a fixed-term employment contract, the bank will be very strict on the debt ratio and will accept very difficult debt over 33%.

The rest to live

This is a point in the credit file that is being watched more and more by the banker. The “remainder to live” is the portion of income that remains once the credit date has been settled. It must be sufficient to support the members of the household. This amount is therefore analyzed according to the number of people in the household

What you need to remember if you are applying for a real estate loan and you are in a cdd or intermediation is that it is quite possible to obtain a loan but expect that the other aspects of the file are analyzed in great detail by the banker.

To build a cheap house

Many homeownership candidates have few means to own their main home. The goal is clearly defined: to build a cheap house . All efforts then tend to try to save on all items to reduce the debt ratio

The land pass: a solution that ends on December 31, 2010

Until now, one of the solutions was to put the project in the context of the land pass. This arrangement made it possible to separate the financing of land and construction. Clearly, the buyer was the tenant of the land for which he signed a long-term lease and could then devote the entire budget to the construction of the house. However, this device ending on December 31, 2010, it is no longer possible to benefit. However, it has allowed many buyers to invest in real estate on particularly advantageous terms.

Choose a cheap builder

It is possible to build a cheap house through a professional. However, it is preferable that the latter is a member of the Union of Manufacturers of Individual Houses (UNCMI) for you to have all the necessary guarantees. But choosing a good builder is not easy. The reason is that the elements of comparison are not always identical.

Know how to analyze the description

The choice of materials comes in a lot of the cost of construction and to succeed in building a cheap house, the builder will tend to choose cheap materials. While for some jobs it is possible to have a quality house with lower quality materials, some aspects of the construction deserve special attention.

Treat the shell

If there is a job on which it is not really possible to save, it is the main work. If you build a house on sloping ground with a buried basement, it is essential that the walls of the latter be mounted in “concrete banché” to establish the strength of the work and not in rubble. On the other hand, one can gain a lot on the budget and manage to build one’s house cheap if one opts for a frame type “farmhouse” much cheaper than the traditional framework. This choice will not affect the strength of the building.

Building a cheap house by providing self-help

Building a cheap house by providing self-help

One possibility to succeed in building a cheap house is not to go through a builder but to choose an architect for the realization of the plans and possibly for the filing of the building permit and then to ensure yourself the prime contractor . You will then choose, as the owner of the work, the different craftsmen who will intervene in the construction.

Self-construction: a solution for most DIYers

Most do-it-yourselfers can opt for self-construction. This is obviously the best way to build a cheap home but that will pose two major problems. The first concerns the real estate loan. Many banking organizations no longer finance self-construction because there is a risk to the strength of the building when the house is not built by a professional. The other problem concerns the underwriting of property and casualty insurance. You should know that this insurance is mandatory. However, it is very difficult to subscribe individually, insurers being very few to propose it.
