Fixed Interest Rate

Our Green Mortgage fixed interest rate is a discount of 0.30% off any of our fixed rate options ranging from 1 to 10 years. You can avail of the discounted fixed rate when you start your mortgage where (a) the property you are buying or building has or will have a Building Energy Efficiency Rating (BER) of B3 or better, (b) or if you are are switching your mortgage loan to us from another lender and the property has a BER rating of B3 or better and (c) you draw down your new mortgage by 30 June 2022. (At the end of your initial fixed rate period you can choose from the normal interest rate options available to existing customers at that stage.)

You can get the Green Mortgage fixed interest rate if (a) you are borrowing to buy or build a home for yourself or your family or an Investment property to let, as long as the property has a BER rating of B3 or better, or (b) if you are topping up an existing mortgage with us to upgrade your property to achieve a BER rating of B3 or better (the Green Mortgage fixed interest rate will only apply to the top-up Equity Release and not to the existing loan).

We have terms and conditions for this Green Mortgage fixed interest rate, see here.

So now you can save money on your mortgage interest rate when you save money on your energy bills.

    • The Green Mortgage fixed interest rate is a discount (reduction) of 0.30% that we apply to our standard mortgage loan fixed rates.
    • The Green Mortgage fixed interest rate is available to you if you:
      • are buying a property that has a Building Energy Rating (BER) of B3 or better or are borrowing to build or up-grade your home so that it has a BER rating of B3 or better, AND
      • provide us with the BER certificate showing a rating of B3 or better before you draw down the loan (where you are borrowing to pay for building works, you provide us instead with specifications showing that rating will be achieved, and you provide the BER certificate once building works are complete), AND
      • if you are switching your mortgage loan to us from another lender and the property has a BER of B3 or better, AND
      • draw down your new mortgage loan prior to 30 June 2022.
    • The Green Mortgage fixed interest rate is available only if you choose a fixed interest rate that begins when you draw down your mortgage loan. It is not available with any of our variable rates.
    • The Green Mortgage fixed interest rate will apply to the mortgage loan for the period of your chosen fixed rate from the date the loan is drawn down. Our standard interest rate options for existing customers will apply at the end of that initial fixed rate period (so the discount ends then).
    • Full terms and conditions of your mortgage loan will be set out in your mortgage loan documentation including your Letter of Offer except that it will refer you to the dates for drawdown that we have set out above (so you need to take careful note of them and to bring them to the attention of your solicitor or builder if necessary).

    • The Green Mortgage fixed interest rate is available on new borrowing to purchase a residential property rated B3 or better or to build or carry out improvements on a residential a property in order to achieve a BER rating of B3 or better or if you are switching your mortgage loan to the Bank of Ireland Group from another lender outside the our Group and the property has a BER of B3 or better. If you draw down your mortgage loan in stages (e.g. for a self-build or to improve an existing home):
      • the first drawdown must be made prior to 30 June 2022 to qualify for the Green Mortgage fixed interest rate, AND
      • you must provide a detailed specification from your builder showing work to be undertaken to achieve a BER rating of B3.
    • We reserve the right to withdraw the Green Mortgage fixed interest rate at any time at our discretion.
