The best thing you can do with mortgage arrears is to pay them back as soon as you can.
If you are not in a position to pay your arrears, you need to give us a full description of your finances and the only way to do that is to fill out a Standard Financial Statement (SFS). This is a requirement under the Mortgage Arrears Resolution Process (MARP).
The SFS is quite detailed and can take a while to complete. It will give a clear picture of your finances and allows us to see what can be done to help you with your arrears. You’ll also need to submit some supporting documents with your SFS, such as bank statements or wage slips.
To help you fill out your SFS we created a helpful user guide which contains lots of information and tips. If you get stuck when you’re filling out your SFS, we’d be happy to help you - just call us on 1850 330 044 and our expert staff will talk you through it. On average it takes 44 minutes to complete the entire form but many customers manage it in less than that.
You can now fill out and submit your SFS online, which is usually quicker and easier than using paper forms. You’ll be able to save your SFS as you go, which means you can come back to it later if you need more information. When your digital SFS is complete, you simply press “finish”. Please choose an online form below to complete.
If you can’t work out which SFS form to use or if you are an advisor representing a borrower, call us on 1850 33 00 44 and we will help you.
