You must have home insurance cover, with at least fire cover in place for us to give you the money for the mortgage. Home insurance should be at least for what it costs to rebuild the property.
If you are buying an apartment, please send us a copy of your building block policy (available from your solicitor). We can help with a Home Insurance quote. Just contact your Mortgage Advisor in your local branch, call 0818 24 44 25, or log on www.aib.ie. You can of course, arrange your own cover if you want to.
