What is RPSN?
RPSN, or the annual percentage rate of charge, is an indicator that allows you to compare the costs of different loans or mortgages. RPSN includes not only the interest rate but also all other fees such as account management fees or loan origination fees, including fees to third parties. RPSN thus shows the actual price of the loan you will pay.
How is RPSN calculated?
RPSN is calculated as an annual percentage of the total cost of the loan. The calculation of RPSN takes into account not only the interest rate, but also other fees such as property evaluation fees, fee for managing the real estate cadastre record, or loan origination fees. The formula for calculating RPSN is as follows:
(Interest rate + all other fees) / loan amount x 100
What is the difference between RPSN and interest rate?
The difference between RPSN and interest rate is that RPSN includes all other fees associated with the loan, while the interest rate only shows the cost of interest. RPSN thus shows the actual price of the loan you will pay, while the interest rate only shows the cost of interest.
Why is it important to compare RPSN when choosing a loan?
Comparing RPSN when choosing a loan is important because it allows you to compare the costs of different loans and mortgages. RPSN shows the actual price of the loan you will pay and thus allows you to choose a loan with the lowest costs. It is important to realize that a lower interest rate does not necessarily mean lower overall loan costs if high fees are added to it. By comparing RPSN, you can be sure that you are choosing a loan with the lowest costs and therefore the most favorable offer.
How can I verify RPSN?
You can verify RPSN with the loan or loan provider. Most providers should be able to tell you the RPSN of your loan or loan. RPSN should also be stated in the loan agreement or on the provider's website. RPSN should also be stated in the advertisement of the loan or loan.
What to watch out for when comparing?
It is important to be aware that there is some flexibility in what is required to be included in RPSN calculations. Loan providers may include different fees in their RPSN calculation, which can lead to different results. Therefore, it is important to carefully read the loan agreement and verify what is included in the RPSN. This will allow you to compare the costs of the loan with other offers and make the best choice. It is therefore important to be careful when comparing RPSN and not focus solely on the number, but consider how lender come up with the particular RPSN.
In conclusion, RPSN is an important indicator for comparing the costs of loans and loans. It is important to verify RPSN with the provider and compare it with other offers to make the best choice. RPSN should be stated in the loan agreement, on the provider's website, and in the advertisement.
