By 30 June 2021, contracts covered by the moratorium that would have expired during the period up to 30 June 2021 will not expire.
In which cases did we set the extension automatically?
The extension of the moratorium was automatically set for contracts under the moratorium on 31 December 2020. Of course, our clients have the opportunity to opt out from the moratorium, they must make a declaration in this regard, the details of which can be found under Declaration Options.
In which cases did we not set the extension automatically?
Loans / leases already disbursed under contracts existing on 18 March 2020 that were not under the moratorium in December 2020 were not automatically subject to the extension of the moratorium, but it is still possible to opt in to the moratorium. To do this, you need to make a declaration, the details can be found under Declaration Options.
If you decide to use the moratorium extension and have previously placed a standing order to settle the instalments, you will need to withdraw it, they will not be stopped automatically! If you use the moratorium but have not yet withdrawn your standing order from the current account held with CIB Bank for loan repayment, the amount transferred under your order will be credited to your account.
