Topping Up your Mortgage
How much can I borrow for my Top Up Mortgage?
We want to give you room to plan a lovely renovation or makeover. But there are some boundaries on how much you can borrow – your home being one of them.
You can apply for a minimum of €10,000. And the limit? You can apply for up to 80% of the value of your property (including your existing mortgage). We do not lend for the purchase of studio apartments valued at under €275,000.
Renewable energy and other energy efficient home improvements may be considered for amounts less than €10,000.
What you can borrow will depend on what you can comfortably afford to repay each month. As a general rule this should not exceed 35% of your disposable income, however this may vary according to your situation.
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.
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 your 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 retail intermediary
Repayment term can be up to 35 years, subject to the age of borrowers
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.
Warning: If you do not keep up your repayments you may lose your home.
Warning: You may have to pay charges if you pay off a fixed-rate loan early.
Warning: The cost of your monthly repayments may increase.
Warning: If you do not meet the repayments on your loan, your account will go into arrears. This may affect your credit rating, which may limit your ability to access credit in the future.
