About our Home Mortgages
The Mortgage Loan is a loan repayable to us by instalments over an agreed term at fixed or variable interest rates, secured by a mortgage / charge on your property.
Typically the instalments are paid by direct debit.
The total price of the Mortgage Loan is made up of interest at our published mortgage Loan rate(s) appropriate to the mortgage loan. If you want an indication of what your repayment instalment would be, telephone 1890 724 724, or visit our website www.aib.ie. The exact amount will be shown on your Letter of Offer if you proceed.
You may also have to pay other expenses such as stamp duty, registration fees, valuation fee and your solicitor's fees in relation to the mortgage as well as mortgage protection insurance and home insurance.

The above notice in respect of adjustments to repayment rates will not apply during any period when the loan is at a fixed rate.
