Icelandic term or phrase: Íbúðalánasjóður
Actually, I know the EN translation (Housing Financing Fund), but the translation is into Hungarian and, in a previous version, this term was translated as "property financing fund".

So my question is: does the Icelandic term explicitly state this is about residential property?

TIA, Eva
