The EBS up to 3% Back in Cash Mortgage Offer

EBS is offering home buyers up to 3% Back in Cash. That’s as much as 3% (2% upfront and 1% in 5 years) of the value of your new mortgage if you are a first time buyer, mover, or switching your mortgage to EBS.

Yep. That's €7,500 on a €250,000 mortgage, Back in Cash. Why? Because an EBS Mortgage Master knows the mortgage process back to front – they know that that extra few bob really counts in the final ‘moving in’ stage.

Your EBS Mortgage Master doesn’t like any messing or fussing, either. That’s why you get your EBS 3% Back in Cash mortgage offer straight into the current account used to pay your mortgage, using a SEPA direct debit, 2% within 2 months of drawdown and an additional 1% after 5 years subject to conditions of the mortgage.

Sounds Great! Show me some examples

The amount you’ll get back depends on the size of your mortgage – so the bigger the mortgage, the bigger the lump sum. Simples. Here are some examples.

My Mortgage Back in Cash at Drawdown Back in Cash Year 5
€100,000 €2,000 €1,000
€150,000 €3,000 €1,500
€220,000 €4,400 €2,200
€250,000 €5,000 €2,500

But am I eligible? Only if…

  • Competitive interest rates including Variable relative to your loan to value and Fixed rates
  • For customers who are unsure of what type of rate to select, EBS provide the option of splitting the loan amount in two, so you can avail of both the variable interest rate on a portion of the loan and a fixed interest rate on the remaining portion of the loan
  • Up to 90% Loan To Value (LTV)
  • Up to 80% loan to value is available for a studio apartment valued at €275,000 or above, or a one bedroom property. We do not lend for the purchase of studio apartments valued at under €275,000.
  • Repayment term up to 35 years, subject to the age of borrowers
  • You will need to be over 18 and security will be required before you can obtain a mortgage
  • What you can borrow will also depend on what you can comfortably afford to repay monthly. This typically should not exceed 35% of your disposable income, however this may vary according to individual circumstances
  • If you take a Mortgage with a fixed rate of at least one year and decide to repay whole or part early or if you convert to a variable interest rate or if you change to another fixed interest rate, you may incur an early breakage cost payable to EBS d.a.c.
