How it works
You will need to be over 18 and security will be required before you can obtain a mortgage
What you can borrow will also depend on what you can comfortably afford to repay monthly, this typically should not exceed 35% of your disposable income, however this may vary according to individual circumstances
If you take a Mortgage with a fixed rate of at least one year and decide to repay whole, or part early, if you convert to a variable interest rate, or, if you change to another fixed interest rate you may incur an early breakage cost payable to Allied Irish Banks plc., and/or AIB Mortgage Bank.
You will require Mortgage Protection Insurance which can be arranged via AIB or you may purchase this through another Insurance company.
Keep in mind you will also need money for Valuation fees (You will need to use a valuer from the AIB Residential Mortgage Valuers panel , Legal fees maybe a Surveyor and Stamp Duty. Not forgetting possible repairs and decoration on your new home.

The following is applicable only where the interest rate is FIXED for a period of at least one year:
During any period when a fixed interest rate applies, the Lender may agree:
(i) to allow full or partial out of course repayment ("prepayments"), or
(ii) to convert the facility to a variable interest rate or to an alternative fixed interest rate ("conversions")
Prepayments, conversions and early repayment following demand by the Lender will be subject to the payment by you of an early breakage cost calculated using the following formula:
Early breakage cost = A x U x D%, where
"A" is the amount of the prepayment or early repayment following demand by the Lender, or the amount of the conversion, and"U" is the unexpired term of the fixed interest rate period, and
"D" is the difference between the fixed interest rate applying to the facility and the fixed interest rate which would then apply to the facility for the amount of "A" for the term of "U".
E.G. €100k @ 7% for 60 months, full repayment after 36 months, current prevailing rate for 24 months= 5% early breakage cost €4,000 (€100k X 24/12 X 2% = €4,000)
If the security includes a new mortgage of property other than your private dwelling place or holiday home, you will have to pay the Bank's solicitor's fees for each property mortgaged as well as your own solicitor's fees, outlays and property registration fees.
