Some 600,000 customers took CHF-indexed bank loans to buy property in Poland, among them numerous foreign individuals seeking safe and reliable investment on the fast-growing market of the new EU member state. The popularity of this kind of loans peaked between 2006 and 2008 when the CHF to PLN exchange rate was particularly favourable to Polish currency.
Legal help for CHF mortgage holders
Since the FX-indexation mechanism makes the customers prone to serious consequences of the currency fluctuation the contractual clauses containing indexation are often deemed unfair and abusive. Therefore, many customers decide to file the lawsuit against the bank in order to have the entire loan agreement annulled or simply the indexation clause removed. The potential savings for mortgage borrowers are significant, and may be equal to the amount borrowed.
The recent ECJ’s ruling of October 3, 2019 (C-260/18) has strengthened the position of plaintiffs in the actions against the banks.
