The EBS green 4 year fixed rate mortgage is available to customers who are buying for the first time, moving, buying a holiday home, topping-up an existing mortgage, switching a mortgage to us, moving to a different fixed rate or have fully completed building a high energy rated home. You can also apply if you are moving home, and your negative equity mortgage is with us.
You’ll need to provide a valid BER certificate with a rating of A1, A2, A3, B1, B2 or B3 from within the last ten years.
You can move from your current EBS Fixed Rate to get the EBS Green 4 Year Fixed Rate if there are at least four years left on your EBS mortgage. If you’re on one of our fixed rates, you may have to pay an early breakage charge to leave it. More information on how we calculate an early breakage charge can be found on the EBS Green 4 Year Fixed Rate Brochure.
You can leave your current EBS variable rate to get the green 4-year fixed rate mortgage if there are at least four years left on your current EBS mortgage. We won’t charge you an early breakage charge.
You can find out more, and get an idea of what the cost of the mortgage will be from your local EBS Office from your EBS Mortgage Master.
To apply, complete the Home Loan Interest Rate Application Form and post it with a copy of your BER Certificate to 10 Molesworth Street, Dublin 2, D02 R126.
Before the end of your green 4-year fixed rate mortgage term, we’ll send you our rates at that time. You can then choose a new rate.
