Find out by getting Approval in Principle in just 15 minutes by either dropping into your nearest branch or calling 0818 210 585 or +353 1 215 1339. You don’t need to provide anything for Mortgage AIP, it’s simply a chat about your finances. We’ll ask you about how much you earn, what loans you have and what type of mortgage you’re looking to switch (i.e. how much you want to borrow and for how long) – this helps us decide how much we can lend you. While it’s not a final approval, this helps us to decide how much we could lend you.
The minimum mortgage amount you can borrow is €40,000. The maximum amount you can borrow depends on several factors such as your income and your capacity to repay your loan.
Our minimum term is 5 years and our maximum term for home mortgages is 35 years. Our maximum term for Buy-to-let mortgages is 25 years.
It’s a requirement of your mortgage to have home insurance and life cover in place for the duration of your mortgage term. Talk to one of our Insurance Advisors in branch or on 0818 818 747 or + 353 1 655 0547 today. This policy can be obtained from a provider other than permanent tsb.
As part of the switching process you will need to provide us with a current valuation of your property completed by a member of the Bank’s valuation panel. You will also need to appoint a solicitor to take care of the legal work involved. However our 2% cash back will go a long way to covering your legal fees!
Property stamp duty is only payable on the purchase of a property and does not apply when switching your mortgage.
