Overpayment Options

Lump-Sum Payments

(i) Lump-sum payments of any amount (where payment is made by cheque, the cleared funds) will be: (a) applied, at the option of the applicant, to reduce the applicant’s monthly repayments and to continue to repay the loan over the remaining term or; (b) in the case of annuity mortgages applied, at the option of the applicant, to reduce the loan term or; (c) credited to the mortgage account thus reducing the loan balance outstanding and either allowing the funding of future underpayments or payment holidays with overpayments.
(ii) Interest may be adjusted, in the case of monthly rest accounts, on the first day of the month following receipt of payment of the lump-sum and in the case of daily rest accounts, on receipt of payment of the lumpsum.
(iii) Where the lump-sum payment is made in respect of a fixed rate mortgage prior to the expiry of a fixed interest rate period, the applicant shall pay an additional sum calculated in accordance with the conditions relating to fixed rate loans as provided in general mortgage loan approval conditions applicable to the applicant’s mortgage. (Please see important information on ‘Fixed Rate Loans’ at the end of the terms and conditions).

There are three types of interest calculation accounts: yearly, monthly and daily. Of these, only Permanent tsb interest only Daily calculation accounts will accrue an interest benefit if there is a credit on the account.

Regular Overpayments

(i) Regular overpayments may be made monthly or in respect of any other period as agreed with Permanent tsb and of any amount.

Preferred Payment Date

The applicant may elect to change the due date of payment of the scheduled monthly or other periodic repayment to any other date of the month in which such payment is due but the scheduled monthly or other periodic repayment payable thereafter will be increased over the remaining term of the mortgage to take account of the daily amount of interest accrued between the previous date for such repayment and the new preferred date of such repayment. Please note that the exercise of this option may result in additional interest costs over the term of the loan. This option is currently not available on former Irish Permanent mortgages. Your preferred payment date cannot be changed if you are already on a restructure agreement (for managing arrears on your mortgage) or a flexible repayment option. The date can only be amended once in any billing period. If the preferred payment date falls on a non-business day, the monthly payment will be payable on the last business day prior to that non-business day.

No refunds of Overpayments or Lump-Sum Payments

No refunds of overpayments or lump-sum payments will be made to the applicant when payment thereof is received by Permanent tsb.

Variation

The applicant must satisfy the mortgage requirements applicable to the flexible repayment options prior to the exercise of any flexible repayment options. Permanent tsb may amend or vary such mortgage requirements from time to time. Permanent tsb may amend or vary these terms and conditions from time to time.

Application for Flexible Repayment Option

Permanent tsb reserves the right to refuse any application in respect of the exercise of any flexible repayment options for any reason which, in its absolute discretion, it thinks fit. Flexible options can be set up on monthly rest accounts and daily rest accounts. No flexible repayment options are available on endowment, interest only, annual interest or pension-backed mortgages unless specified. All applications must be received at least 16 days before the next repayment billing date to be processed.

Termination
