Got some questions?

Here are some useful answers to big questions

  • Competitive interest rates including variable rate relative to your loan to value and fixed rates.

  • For customers who aren’t sure what rate to choose, we give you the option of splitting the loan amount in two, so you can have the variable interest rate on a portion of the loan and a fixed interest rate on the remaining portion of the loan.

  • You can borrow up to 90% of the value of the property - Loan To Value (LTV) *90% where you are not applying for additional money on top of your existing mortgage balance; or

  • 80% for a one bed property or studio apartment valued at €275,000 or above. We do not lend for studio apartments valued under €275,000. 

  • Repayment terms of up 35 years may be available.

Things may have changed since you last got your mortgage – new Central Bank Rules have come into play, for instance. So how much you can borrow will be based on your income, your house price, and what you can afford.

Up to 90% loan to value is available on switcher mortgages.

Up to 80% loan to value is available for a studio apartment valued at €275,000 or above, or a one-bedroom property.

What you can borrow will also depend on what you can comfortably afford to repay monthly, this typically should not be more than 35% of your disposable income, however this may vary according to individual circumstances. Why not use our mortgage calculator to see what you can afford?  

  • Appoint a solicitor and let us know their name and address. If your application to switch your mortgage is approved by EBS, we will send you and your solicitor a Letter of Loan Offer and the mortgage terms and conditions

  • You meet with your solicitor to review and sign your Letter of Offer and any other legal documents

  • Your solicitor returns the signed legal documentation to us

  • Once you meet all the conditions of your Letter of Offer, your solicitor requests the mortgage funds 

  • We send the mortgage funds to your solicitor and send you a letter confirming drawdown of your new mortgage

  • Your solicitor will use the mortgage funds issued by EBS to clear the outstanding mortgage with your existing mortgage provider.

Your house will have to be valued by an independent valuer from the EBS Valuation Panel. This will cost you €150. If the valuation is carried out more than four months before the requested date of drawdown, a re-valuation will be required which will cost you €65. EBS will arrange the valuation of the property on your behalf.
