Home buying calculators
To get started, our calculators can give you a rough idea of how much you might be able to borrow and what repayments to expect.
Terms of up to 35 years are available for First Time Buyers, Movers and Switchers, to a maximum age of 70. Fixed rates roll to the corresponding new business Loan to Value variable rate at the end of the fixed period.
Principal Dwelling Homes
The lender is Bank of Ireland Mortgages. Lending criteria and terms and conditions apply. Over 18s only. Mortgage approval is subject to assessment of suitability and affordability. You mortgage your property to secure the loan. We require property and life insurance.
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, 70% of the full property value for Buy to Let) but these limits may vary.
A typical mortgage 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%). The total amount you pay is €148,114.60. APRC includes €150 valuation fee and mortgage charge of €175 paid to the Property Registration Authority. 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].
LTV stands for loan to value. This is the ratio between the amount you borrow and value of the property or the purchase price, whichever is lower. For example, if a property value is €200,000 and the loan is €150,000 then the LTV is 75%.
APRC means annual percentage rate of charge.
BTL stands for buy to let.
