The Third Pillar for property owners


What type of policy is used to cover the mortgage in case of death?

There are many solutions to cover the death and, depending on the type of mortgage and amortization, we can choose a policy with constant capital, or with decreasing capital. For example, if you regularly make amortization, the most sensible thing would be to have a policy where the death capital decrease at the same rate as decrease your debt. During a personal consulting you will find answers to this and other topics.

Can I use the third pillar to pay my home restoring?

The answer is yes. The 3rd pillar can be used to pay for the renovation of the primary house. Be careful though, because you can only use capital for certain types of jobs.

Have you already heard about indirect amortization?

Indirect depreciation through the third pillar offers us a double advantage. First: it allows us to accumulate the capital that will be used to pay off the mortgage when you retire, deducting the amount paid every year from taxes. Second: by keeping the debt unchanged until retirement (or mortgage expiration), you will have a greater interest charge, which you can deduct for tax purposes. Overall, this system is generally more advantageous than direct depreciation. For further information, do not hesitate to contact us by clicking here
