What is a Switcher Mortgage?
A ‘Switcher’ Mortgage is one where Haven is re-financing or taking over an existing mortgage borrowing from another Lending Institution, allowing you to switch your mortgage without switching home!
Switch your Mortgage to Haven and we’ll pay you €2,000 to cover your costs.
If you’re thinking of switching your home mortgage from your current provider, your Mortgage Intermediary would be delighted to talk to you about a Haven mortgage.
Once you’ve made the switch, we’ll pay you €2,000 directly to the current account you use to pay your mortgage.
How much can I borrow?
Up to 90% Loan to Value is available on a Switcher mortgage.
Up to 80% loan to value is available for a studio apartment valued at €275,000 or above, or a one bedroom property. We do not lend for the purchase of studio apartments valued at under €275,000.
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.
Haven offers competitive interest rates from variable and fixed rate options. For additional advice on your interest options you should speak to your chosen Haven retail intermediary and they will guide you through all your available options.
For customers who are unsure of what type of rate to select, Haven can provide the option of splitting the loan amount in two, so you can avail of both the variable interest rate on a portion of the loan and a fixed interest rate on the remaining portion of the loan.
If you decide to avail of a fixed interest rate this will remain the same during the agreed fixed rate period, while a variable rate can fluctuate. You can see a full listing of our current rates by clicking here
One thing to keep in mind, if you decide to avail of a fixed rate and later during the fixed term agreement you decide to switch you rate to a variable rate, a breakage cost may apply. For more information with regard to our rate offerings you should consult with your chosen Haven intermediary
You will need to be over 18 and security will be required before you can obtain a mortgage
If your loan application has been successful you will be required to take out Mortgage Protection Cover & Home Insurance cover. These are not products that Haven offers directly but your chosen Haven retail intermediary will be able to support you through all the necessary requirements.
As your application progresses you will need to keep in mind costs that will arise from Valuation fees (you will need to use a valuer from the Haven Residential Mortgage Valuers panel), Legal fees, maybe a Surveyor and Stamp Duty fees. Also remember possible repairs and decoration costs on your new home.
