What other costs may be associated with purchasing a property?

You should remember to budget for all the costs associated with purchasing a new property which may include:

  • Legal fees – Approx €1500 – €2500

When you have found your desired property and we have sanctioned your mortgage you must choose a solicitor to act on your behalf. It is worth shopping around to get the most
competitive quote available.

  • Valuation Fee: Approx €150

You will need a valuation report completed by an approved valuer from the EBS residential mortgage valuers’ panel before your letter of loan offer can be issued to you and your solicitor.

  • Stamp Duty
If you are purchasing a property the stamp duty is 1% of the purchase price.
