Get an extra 0.20% off your mortgage rate with a KBC current account.

The Need-to-Knows

*Source: Bonkers.ie 1st December 2020
  • The reduced new business rate (with a KBC Current Account) of 2.25% (APRC 2.9%) Fixed is based on a 2 Year <=60% Loan to Value (LTV). At the end of your fixed rate period you will roll off on to a new business LTV variable roll off interest rate determined by Loan to Value at initial drawdown. Information correct as at 1st December 2020.

    Lending criteria, terms and conditions apply. The property is mortgaged to secure the loan. Life and home insurance are required. The maximum loan amount will typically not exceed 3.5 times an individual’s gross annual income. The maximum mortgage is 90% of the property value. As a general rule, loan amounts are subject to monthly repayments of a maximum of 50% of disposable income and will vary according to individual circumstances. A typical variable rate PDH (Private Dwelling House) mortgage of €100,000 over 240 months costs €579.96 per month at 3.50% (APRC 3.57%). The total amount repayable is €139,190.33. The LTV (Loan to Value) Variable rate of 3.50% (APRC 3.57%) variable is based on a loan to value of >80%-90%. A 1% rise in interest rate will increase this payment by €52.69 per month. APRC = Annual Percentage Rate of Charge and consists of a variable borrowing rate of 3.50%, valuation fee of €150.00 and security release fee of €38. Information correct as at 1st December 2020. Rates may vary over the term of a mortgage.

    Please Note
    Please ensure you review all the mortgage rate options available to you to identify the most appropriate for your personal circumstances. You may also like to get independent advice before deciding to avail of the offer from your solicitor or speak to a financial advisor.In order to receive this contribution you will be fixing the interest rate on your mortgage for a period of either 3, 5 or 10  years (the fixed period).  Before agreeing to fix your interest rate you should be aware of the following:-
     
    When you choose a fixed rate, you know exactly how much your monthly mortgage repayment will be during the fixed period.

    If your mortgage is redeemed either fully or partially during the fixed period you may be charged a break funding fee.  You should  consider whether a change in your circumstances might occur (such as needing to sell the property or paying off a lump sum from your mortgage) which may result in you incurring this fee.  Details of how this fee is calculated is included in your Letter of Offer. 

    During the fixed period you will not be subject to any interest rate increases or decreases (subject to a number of limited exceptions set out in our General Homeloan Conditions).

    On the expiry of the fixed period your interest rate will revert to our then current New Business PDH Loan to Value (LTV) Variable Rates.

    We reserve the right to amend, modify, cancel, withdraw or change the terms on which this contribution is available at any time at our sole discretion.
  • The Central Bank Mortgage measures are ceilings set on the amount of money that can be borrowed to buy residential property using:

    Loan to Value (LTV) limits
    Loan to Income (LTI) limits.

    Loan-to-Value limitsThe LTV limit requires you to have a minimum deposit before you can get a mortgage. The size of this deposit depends on what category of buyer you are.

    First-time-buyers are required to have a minimum deposit of 10%
    Second and subsequent buyers are required to have a minimum deposit of 20%

    Loan-to-Income limits
    The LTI limit restricts the amount of money you can borrow to a maximum of 3.5 times your gross income. So for example, a couple with a combined income of €100,000 can borrow up to a maximum of €350,000.
