Mortgage guide Other costs to consider

Building's Insurance - For any mortgage you have to have buildings insurance. You may be offered it from your mortgage provider but it can pay to shop around to find the best policy for you. If your property is leasehold and you pay a management or maintenance fee, check to see if you’re already covered.

Solicitor's fees - for the legal work involved in buying your new home (and selling your current home if you have one)

Stamp duty - this is the tax you pay when you buy a property

Valuation fees - if your mortgage lender charges to value your new home

Survey charges - if you decide to get a structural surveyor to check your new home for defects and problems before you go ahead

Moving costs - if you want to hire a van, use a removal firm or store your things for a while

Auctioneer's fees - are paid by the seller rather than the buyer

Mortgage guide When do your mortgage payments start?

When making your application, you can choose the date each month your mortgage payment is taken.

Home Mover mortgages How do you work out your new loan to value?

Add the purchase price of your new home to the amount of negative equity to be carried forward, then divide this by the purchase price of your new home and multiply by 100.

For example, if you were to sell you current home for €150,000 and your existing mortgage is €175,000, you would have €25,000 of negative equity.

If you were to purchase a new home for €200,000, you would require a new mortgage of €200,000 plus the €25,000 of negative equity to be carried forward, which is a total of €225,000.

Your new loan to value would be your new mortgage total of €225,000 divided by the purchase price of your new home of €200,000, then multiply by 100 to give you an loan to value of 112.5%.

Home Mover mortgages What happens to my tracker rate after 10 years?

After 10 years, your ECB tracker rate will revert to the Ulster Bank Standard Variable Rate (SVR), unless an alternative rate is chosen.

You will be eligible to choose a new rate from our range of fixed and variable rates available at that time.

SVR is currently 4.30% (4.4% APR). SVR is not available to new customers. As SVR is not linked to the ECB base rate, the rate can increase at any time even if there is no change in the ECB base.

Typical example


The cost per month of a typical €100,000, 20 year Tracker rate mortgage at 4.4% APR variable is €621.90 excluding insurance. Total amount repayable is €149,256.00. If rates increase by 1% an additional €54.74 would be payable monthly. This example assumes that APR remains constant for the length of the term.

APR - Annual Percentage Rate
ECB - European Central Bank Base Rate (currently 0.05%)
