Ulster Bank has announced today that it will pay a €1,500 contribution towards new mortgage customer’s legal fees. The payment, which will be made following mortgage drawdown, is available to customers who have a mortgage offer issued between March 13 and June 13.
The bank, which recently announced its biggest ever mortgage rate reduction across fixed and variable ranges which are available to both new and existing customers, is targeting the mortgage market as a key channel for growth as it challenges the two domestic pillar banks. Its team of new ‘mobile mortgage managers’ are equipped to visit customers outside of the branch network and talk them through the mortgage options available to them. This new team will be in addition to the bank’s retail branch network as well as its online and telephony channels giving customers more choice when it comes to discussing their mortgage options with Ulster Bank.
Jim Ryan, head of branch banking at Ulster Bank said, “I’m really delighted to be able to announce this great new mortgage offer. We are constantly trying to help our customers fulfill their ambition to own their own home and this new initiative is part of our wider mortgage rate and service offering which includes some market-leading mortgage rates across our fixed and variable range.”
He continued, “At Ulster Bank we have long focused on choice and being where customers want us to be. Selected branches are open on Saturdays and late on Thursday evenings and our new mobile mortgage managers will travel to customers’ homes and places of work or anywhere that is convenient for them.
“Ulster Bank is committed to becoming number one for customer service on the island of Ireland so in addition to great rates for new and existing customers we now have these unrivalled additional services to offer our customers including first-time buyers,” he concluded.
The offer runs from March 13 to June 13 and can be withdrawn or extended at any stage at the sole discretion of Ulster Bank. A mortgage offer must be issued within this period to be eligible.
