Are you paying too much on your home mortgage?

Are you taking advantage of lower interest rates to re-finance your mortgage? Your monthly mortgage payment is probably the largest part of your monthly household budget. Banks are now competing for mortgage business, and re-mortgaging of your property may have the potential to reduce your monthly mortgage and allow you to obtain up to 3% cash back from a new lender who is competing for your business.

remortgaging your house

Where you have a mortgage of €100,000 and the rate difference is .5% between your existing mortgage and your new mortgage this can result in a windfall of €2,500 in the first year after fees when the cashback is taken into account. On a fifteen year €100,000 mortgage the saving is €9,000 over the term of the mortgage. If you put this back into the loan you can shave years off your mortgage term. If however you are on a tracker mortgage it is unlikely that you will benefit from a refinance as most trackers are still historically cheap and the banks are losing money on the tracker.

"We can't recommend Lanigan Clarke Solicitors highly enough.
Recently we had run into problems with our mortgage
and Garry Clarke guided us through the sale of our house and the settlement with the bank.
Garry made the whole process very straight forward and was available to us at every stage of the process,
calmly steering us in the right direction and also speaking with the bank
on our behalf when we ran into stressful and difficult issues.
His efficiency and practical support was invaluable.
Thank you!"


"While struggling financially with our mortgage and getting nowhere with our bank, we approached Garry for advice.
Garry immediately put our minds at ease, set out a way forward for us, dealt firmly at all times with the bank,
and saw to it that we received a satisfactory outcome. Garry was always available to take our calls,
to reassure us when the bank was pressuring us, and everything worked out just exactly as he said they would.
We received a first class and professional service at all times from Garry and his staff.
We would recommend anyone struggling with mortgage difficulties to contact Garry. Finally,
Thank you so much for helping us at a very difficult time"
