Frequently Asked Questions

Switching your mortgage typically refers to the process of transferring your existing mortgage from one lender to another, in order to take advantage of better interest rates, loan terms, or other benefits offered by the new lender.

Mortgage switching can help you save money on your monthly mortgage payments or reduce the overall interest you pay on your mortgage over time. It can also help you access other benefits such as more flexible repayment terms, shorter or longer mortgage terms, or the ability to borrow additional funds against your home equity.

Before switching your mortgage, it is important to speak to a Mortgage Advisor first. 

Yes, it is possible to save money by switching your mortgage.

If you can find a new mortgage with a lower interest rate, you can reduce your monthly payments and potentially save thousands of euros in interest over the life of your mortgage.

The right time to switch depends on your reason for switching and whether you will make a saving, taking into account any fees you may be charged. Many people think about switching when they reach the end of a fixed term rate or if interest rates are increasing.

Warning: If you do not meet the repayments on your loan, your account will go into arrears. This may affect your credit rating, which may limit your ability to access credit in the future.
Warning: You may have to pay charges if you pay off a fixed-rate loan early.
Warning: This new loan may take longer to pay off than your previous loans. This means you may pay more than if you paid over a shorter term.
