Bank of Ireland Mortgage Rate Switch / Product Transfers


damianyouellThere are many reasons why clients want to do a rate switch / product transfer instead of doing a remortgage. Many clients just do not want to go through the hassle of the legal work involved with a remortgage. Others have built up a long term relationship with their lender and are happy so do not want to move

Other clients circumstances have changed so that getting a remortgage and going to another lender is not feasible. They might have just gone self employed and do not have adequate income proof. They may have a reduction in income due to going part time or starting a family.

Product Transfers and Rate Switches do not usually involve credit searches so if a clients credit profile would prevent a remortgage then in most cases provided their mortgage payments are up to date their existing lender will allow a rate switch.

Not all lenders allow rate switches and product transfers. However the number of lenders allowing this has grown significantly over the last few years. As a whole of market broker we can compare what is available via your existing lender and what deals are also available from the whole market for you.
