The amount you can borrow is based on the equity or value in your home. The amount you can borrow starts from €25,000 up to 85% of the current market value of your property today, less the amount you owe on the property.
In order to avail of the maximum of 85% of the current market value of your property today, less the amount you owe on the property, you must have your mortgage with us for a minimum of 2 years with a good repayment history and are not seeking to refinance any short-term debt.
