We had a brilliant experience with doddl and would highly recommend their service to anyone seeking a mortgage in today’s market.

We first contacted doddl in early March 2023, and have now closed our sale and received the keys to our home by mid June 2023. We couldn’t have asked for better. Thank you to the entire doddl team!

What is a mortgage broker?

A mortgage broker is a person or company who arranges your mortgage with a mortgage lender.

Brokers offer access to multiple lenders and at doddl we offer mortgages for all major lenders and insurance from all major insurance providers. 

We are essentially a distribution channel for the banks so instead of you having to go to each bank individually to understand what they offer, we do that hard work for you. 

Some brokers charge a fee, at doddl we do not. 

As a broker we are regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland and our role is to work on your behalf to find the best mortgage to suit your needs.

If you go to one bank they will only offer you their rates and terms, if you go to doddl we can offer you the rates and terms for all lenders and providers we work with and can advise on which will best suit your needs.

Our aim is to be your mortgage partner throughout your mortgage lifecycle. Always here to help and offer support.

 

 

How much can I borrow?

When banks assess a mortgage application they look at three key pillars for lending -

1. Income - banks can allow you to borrow up to 4 times 'allowable income' if you are a first time buyer or 3.5 times if you are a second time buyer. 

Allowable income is taxable income including gross annual basic income, a portion of variable income once proven.

Exceptions are available to go above this 3.5 and 4 times limit and lenders grant exceptions on a case by case basis.

We have full access to all lenders credit policy at doddl so can advice exactly how much each will lend to you.

2. Loan to Value

Irish residents qualify for a loan to value of up to 90% for Irish properties under Central Bank lending rules.

As such you need to have 10% of the proposed purchase price as deposit (plus additional funds for transaction costs such as stamp duty and legal fees).

3. Clear evidence of repayment capacity

Every mortgage lender will need to see that you can afford the proposed mortgage repayment. The banks will take your proposed mortgage rate and 'stress test' the current interest rate at 2% above the actual rate (to allow for rate increases) and they will want to see that you have proven in the last six months that you can afford the proposed stress tested repayments. This can be demonstrated by way of rent currently paid, savings or loans discontinuing.

Your mortgage advisor at doddl will work through each of the above areas of your application with you and ensure we present the best possible case to the bank for approval. Its what we do!

Check out our mortgage calculators to find out how much you can borrow.

Who offers the best mortgage?

If there was one 'best' lender then our job would be very easy!

There are a wide range of mortgages available on the Irish market and rates vary significantly. When we work with a client we will be looking to identify their needs with regard to mortgage level, rate, term, any flexible benefits such as overpayment that may be required plus cashback options. 

Every mortgage application is different and what we look to do is to find the best mortgage for our customers circumstances. 

Circumstances can change over time and so can rates so we would work with our customers on multiple occasions to review their interest rates and financial position and switch mortgage as needed.

What is a mortgage?

A mortgage is a loan given by the bank to a customer or joint customers to buy a property.

The loan is secured on the value of the property.

Repayments are paid monthly on a mortgage and level of repayment depends on the mortgage balance, interest rate and mortgage term.
