Lex Specialis for housing loans indexed in Swiss francs
The draft law on the conversion of housing loans indexed in Swiss francs was adopted today at a session of the Government of Serbia, after which it will be submitted to the parliamentary procedure, the government announced.
Finance Minister Sinisa Mali emphasized that the lex specialis resolved the problem that had existed for more than a decade, and that it had been preceded by difficult negotiations, but that a compromise solution had been found.
“This lex specialis is a compromise solution between several stakeholders – citizens, i.e. associations representing them, banks, and the state. The talks were not easy at all, but we managed to find a compromise and the best possible solution for all three parties,” Mali said.
As he explained, the draft law covers all loan users who still have debts in Swiss francs, regardless of the amount of debt.
