Unicaja Banco will collaborate with the regional government of Castilla-La Mancha to provide information and resources to individuals and homeowners’ associations for the rehabilitation of housing in the region, through an agreement signed by the regional Councilor for Development, Nacho Hernando, and the Territorial Manager of Business Banking at Unicaja Banco, Carlos Martín-Forero.
This agreement has also been extended to other financial institutions with presence in the region, at an event held this Friday in Toledo, at the Department of Development, and which was also attended by the Director General of Housing, Inés Sandoval, and the Provincial Representative of Development in Toledo, Jorge Moreno.
Hernando explained that the website of the Department of Development will feature information about the financial products linked to the rehabilitation of housing offered by financial institutions, so that ‘users will be able to find on our website the financial products that the banks operating in our region offer to cover that 20 or 40 percent of the action that is not covered by the non-refundable aid that they will have by the Government of Emiliano García-Page’.
The head of Development remarked that the agreement has ‘a very important feature, and that is that until recently loans could only be offered to individuals, but now more and more loans are being offered to homeowners’ associations’.
Commitment to rehabilitation and energy efficiency
In this regard, Unicaja Banco facilitates, among other measures, the rehabilitation of residential buildings and housing through European Next Generation funds, in a clear commitment to renewable energies and energy efficiency.
Specifically, the bank offers a turnkey service to homeowners’ associations to rehabilitate their buildings and housing and thus optimize energy consumption. This service includes from the initial feasibility analysis for energy rehabilitation to the management of subsidies and the execution and financing of the works.
With the collaboration of rehabilitation agents
To this end, the bank collaborates with top-level rehabilitation agents with broad experience in rehabilitation processes. It has also developed an energy rehabilitation loan for homeowners’ associations, with very competitive conditions.
Furthermore, Unicaja Banco continues to offer entrepreneurs and freelancers a web simulator where they can obtain the necessary information on the Next Generation European funds, as well as be accompanied during the process of searching for and processing the grants.
