3. At Bank of Ireland, we commit to getting back to you about your mortgage application really quickly so there’s no waiting around.


4. When you are switching your mortgage to Bank of Ireland, you will need a solicitor to act on your behalf to complete the legal work required. We will send a copy of all loan documentation to your solicitor. You will also need to organise a valuation. You will need your own funds to pay your valuer and solicitor before the mortgage is issued.


5. If your switching application is successful, we will send you out Mortgage Approval in Principle and related documentation. The Approval in Principle is valid for six months. When you have met the criteria and returned the necessary documentation we will then provide you with a formal Loan offer Letter which sets out the remaining terms and conditions for the mortgage and any further documentation required.


6. It is a legal requirement that you have buildings insurance in place covering your property. By law, you also need to take out a mortgage protection policy when you take out a mortgage. That way, if you were to die before your mortgage was paid off, the remainder of the loan would be paid off and your family wouldn’t have to worry about any unnecessary debt.


7. Your solicitor will liaise with us to transfer the mortgage amount to your previous lender once all the documentation is signed and in order.


8.We’ll give you 2% Cashback when you drawdown your new mortgage with us. If you’re a Bank of Ireland current account customer, you can also qualify for Cashback PLUS – we’ll give you an extra 1% of your mortgage back as cash after 5 years (once you meet the conditions of your mortgage).
