First Time Buyer

Choosing the right mortgage provider for their new home is a daunting process if you are a First Time Buyer. Mortgage Providers differ in terms of their lending criteria so it is very important as a First Time Buyer that you get the most suitable mortgage offer that will suit you in years to come.

Our Mortgage Advisors are independent qualified professionals who are on hand to meet with you and take you through the mortgage process from start to finish, offering you advice on mortgage providers, rates, flexible payment options. They will also advice you on how to negotiate the price you pay for your property along with putting you in touch with a valuer, surveyor and solicitor which you will require in order to purchase a property.

As a First Time Buyer you are entitled to borrow up to 90% of the purchase price to a maximum of €220,000 with the balance at 80%. Therefore you must have a deposit of 10% or higher of the purchase price available from a non borrowed source (i.e. savings built up over time or a gift or shares & investments)

How the Mortgage Process works:

The mortgage process involves quiet a lot of documentation and we have set out below the different stages involved from arranging mortgage approval to closing your mortgage.

Stage 1
Stage 2
Stage 3
Stage 4
Stage 5
Stage 6

Make an Appointment

It is important to sit down or discuss with one of our Advisors your requirements.  They will need you to provide or confirm a number of details in order for them to assess your case accurately. Once the Advisor has checked that you meet the criteria the next stage is t submit an application for approval to the chosen bank.

Application Submitted to Lender

In order to submit an application to the lender, you must meet their documentation requirements and in this regard we have provided a checklist of the required documentation along with the necessary application forms, declaration etc.  The Advisor will then review all documentation, put together a lending report and submit your case for approval to the lender.

Approval in Principle

Once the lender has underwritten your application and they are satisfied it meets with their criteria they will issue Approval in Principle, which will include conditions of approval.  This will then allow you to secure your property, once the property is secured we will then have to arrange a valuation to be done on the property and sent to the lender.  Once all Approval in Principle conditions are meet the bank will then move your application to the next stage which is Loan Offer.

Loan Offer

The bank will issue the loan offer along with a legal pack to your solicitor, you must contact your solicitor to arrange time to meet to sign contracts and other legal documentation.

Arrange Insurance

The next stage of the mortgage process is to arrange mortgage protection and home insurance. At this stage we will contact you to arrange quotations.

Mortgage Closing

The final part of the mortgage process is to ensure that all conditions set by the bank have been met. Your solicitor will have returned the documentations to the lender for final sign-off. Once the lender is satisfied that all conditions of approval have been met by you, they will release the cheque to your solicitor to complete the buying process for your new home.
