The Cashback PLUS Mortgage offer is available to you if:
- You (or one of you) is already an existing Bank of Ireland current account customer AND

- You draw down your new mortgage loan between 5th September 2016 and 30th June 2018.
The Cashback PLUS Mortgage Offer is available whether you chose a fixed or variable rate for your mortgage.
2% cashback payment will be 2% of the amount you borrow under your mortgage loan offer letter. The payment will be made into your mortgage-paying current account within 45 days of drawdown of your mortgage.
The 1% cashback payment at the end of year 5 is 1% of the mortgage loan amount you originally drew down. The 1% cashback payment will be made into your mortgage paying current account within 45 days of the 5th anniversary of your mortgage drawdown.

The lender is Bank of Ireland Mortgages. Lending criteria and terms and conditions apply. A typical mortgage to buy your home of €100,000 over 20 years with 240 monthly instalments costs €615.79 per month at 4.2% variable (Annual Percentage Rate of Charge (APRC) 4.3%). APRC includes €150 valuation fee and mortgage charge of €175 paid to the Property Registration Authority. The total amount you pay is €148,114.60. We require property and life insurance. You mortgage your home to secure the loan. Maximum loan is generally 3.5 times gross annual income and 80% of the property value (90% of the property value for first time buyers). A 1% interest rate rise would increase monthly repayments by €54.02 per month. The cost of your monthly repayments may increase – if you do not keep up your repayments you may lose your home.
At the end of a fixed rate period, existing customers on a fixed rate can choose from our range of fixed rate options or roll to the prevailing Loan to Value Variable rate. Mortgage applicants must be over 18.
Warning: The cost of your monthly repayments may increase.
Warning: If you do not keep up your repayments you may lose your home.
Warning: You may have to pay charges if you pay off a fixed–rate loan early.
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 change.
