How will coronavirus affect my mortgage?

If you already have a mortgage, continue meeting your monthly repayments as usual. Should you face financial difficulties that impact your ability to meet your mortgage repayments, we advise you to make contact with your mortgage lender.

In response the CBUAE has ordered that banks grant temporary relief for a period of up to six months to their customers.
