Why BOI?

The Cashback and Low Fixed Rate

Whether you’re a first time buyer or someone looking to switch their mortgage to Bank of Ireland, there are cashback options to suit you.

Bryan O’Hanlon, a first time buyer, found the mortgage cashback and the MortgageSaver bonus invaluable when he was buying his house and came up against unexpected costs.

“We knew that the house that we were buying was maybe fifteen or twenty years old. It probably needed a small bit of work so having that cashback was almost like a buffer to protect us from that. We didn’t realise it at the start but the front door had to be replaced and the cost of that was far more than what we had expected it to be but the cashback and mortgage saver bonus protected us from that unforeseen expenditure”

Gareth Irvine, who switched his mortgage to Bank of Ireland, used his cashback to clear some personal loans, but was also attracted by the option to fix his rate for 5 years.

“I wanted to fix to protect myself from any variable rate rises that lay ahead. By switching to Bank of Ireland I was able to reduce my monthly repayments with no impact on my personal cash flow or monthly finances. As a very happy BOI mortgage switcher, I can now ask you to ask yourself: ‘why wouldn’t I switch to BOI today?’”

Dedicated mortgage specialists come recommended by colleagues and can provide expert info at a time convenient to you

Applying for a mortgage can be a stressful process. From finding the time to meet with a mortgage specialist to trying to decipher the documentation that needs to be submitted, the whole thing seems designed to frustrate.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Staff members Caroline Crawford and Jackie Ewing found working with dedicated mortgage specialists made all the difference when starting their mortgage journey.

Caroline had a complex mortgage situation with mortgages in both her and her husband’s names in different banks and, after several frustrating experiences with previous mortgage applications, credits her mortgage specialist, Aoife, with giving her and her husband the peace of mind to proceed with the application.

“Aoife gave us a couple of really good suggestions. We really warmed to her and she gave us confidence that we would be able to get this mortgage despite having a number of other mortgages. With her knowledge, we were able to keep our principal residence while getting the mortgage and then rent it out after, which we never thought we’d be able to do.”

Jackie had a similar experience with her mortgage specialist, and she found the convenience of the Bank at Work scheme instrumental in her decision to proceed with her mortgage application with Bank of Ireland.

“It was the convenience of the bank at work scheme, my husband works for eBay and Bank at Work would go in there so that meant he could have conversations with Aoife as well and understand it from that side of things… Aoife understood our circumstances, understood our accounts because she had conversations with us face to face and went through everything with us. She knows her stuff so it put our minds at ease knowing she was looking after us”
