We may receive up to 1% (or whatever maximum is applicable) of the loan for arranging mortgage finance. This commission is paid by the mortgage lender.
In the event of our firm producing a loan offer that is not drawn down, we charge the client €250.00 to cover our overheads i.e. telephone calls, time, paper etc. If a mortgage is redeemed within a 3-year period, a fee will apply. This will cost €500.00 in year one and will reduce in years two and three accordingly. This fee is to cover expenses and loss of commission. If however, you come back to us for further mortgage business this fee will of course be refunded. After year three there will be no fee if the mortgage is redeemed.
