I am retiring to Ireland and am selling my home here and was trying to get to Ireland to actually look for a home however with Covid travel is difficult. I saw your response to Joh is that something that would be helpful or should I rent and look when I am there. I have dual citizen.Thank you,Jane

Hi Jane, to be honest, the property market is going off here. I think this is happening in most countries right now and prices are really fluctuating and expensive. A lot of purchases are also falling through before completion, so be prepared for that in case you set your heart on something. Buying sight unseen is obviously a risk you would need to consider. Are you familiar enough with the areas you are planning on buying? Do you have someone who you trust and knows exactly what you want who can view the properties on your behalf? It is personal choice of course, but please be cautious about doing so.

Hi,I am a italian citizen and I have doubts if I can buy a house in Ireland. I wish move to Ireland ASAP possible and I would like to be sure if I can buy or no a house. Could be more difficult buy a house in ireland if the buyer do not be irish?Thank you very much for your attention and help!

Hi Char,You would need to be more specific about what you are wanting to know as there are many requirements and restrictions when it comes to buying a home. The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission might be a good site for you to refer to.

Hi Colleen,I am doing some research for a friend/client living and working in Australia at the moment but wants to buy back home in Ireland with the intention of moving home at some stage in the future .I have been informed that mortgage companies will only consider it as a holiday home purchase and from what I can figure out the stamp duty will be 7.5% or is that only for Irish people buying abroad and in this situation it would be the standard 1%-2% ? Any help or advice would be appreciated

Hi Colleen, We have recently moved to Ireland from Canada and would like to buy a home in the next 6 months. Will we have to produce a Canadian credit report to our mortgage provider? We own a home in Canada, Thanks

There is no higher stamp duties on the purchase of second homes in Ireland like there is in the UK. You can read more about the Irish stamp duty here. However, if you are going to need a mortgage for your property in Ireland, then they will take into consideration your assets. I suggest meeting with a mortgage lender to go through the process of a pre-approval so you are clear on any financial implications.

Hi Colleen, I am from N.I and would like to move to Dublin. Would I need to get a mortgage from a bank in the republic of Ireland or can you get your mortgage from your original country of origin and use that to buy property?.I once read that in order to buy a house in the republic id have to declare it a holiday home and have up to 30% deposit rather than the normal 5%.

When an overseas buyer purchases a holiday home they are always at risk of the government bringing in policies that may make it difficult e.g. mortgages or taxes. Its also hard to say what Brexit may lead to.

You will need to discuss this with your solicitor as there can be issues with bringing money over from foreign accounts due to laws relating to the prevention of money laundering. Conor MacEvilly is also potentially a good avenue for advice. See his article on Americans buying homes in Ireland.

Colleen and Frank, you are doing a tremendous service with your articles and comments; thank you so much for taking the time and effort to help people out. I am an American who is seriously considering buying a home in Ireland, though I will be visiting first (post-pandemic) to get the sense of what area I want to move to before I make any serious inquiries regarding a home. Your comments and links are getting me off to a good start, and I just wanted you to know that what you are doing is deeply appreciated.

At some point in your life you may want to buy a home. This document coversthe different stages involved in doing this. The Competition and ConsumerProtection Commission (CCPC) also has a step-by-stepguide to buying a home on its website.

There are no residency-based restrictions to buying property in Ireland. Youcan buy property here if you are an Irish citizen, EU/EEA citizen, non-EEAnational or even non-resident in Ireland. However, owning property in Irelanddoes not mean you have the right to live here. Your rightto live in Ireland depends on your personal circumstances, and is separateto property ownership.

You should review your budget to find out how much you can afford in monthlymortgage repayments. You should ensure that you have enough to cover all the costs involved in buying ahome, for example, mortgage costs, legal fees, insurance and stamp duty.The amount of money you can get as a mortgage loan, and the amount you need asa deposit are governed by Central Bank lending limits - see Taking out amortgage for details of these rules. The CCPC has a budgetplanner that you can use to see how much you can afford each month.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that you check whetherthe home is in a High Radon Area on its Radon Risk Map and enquire about if ithas been tested for radon. More information on radon in homes is available fromthe EPA and in our document on measurementof radon levels.

Your mortgage provider will give you formal mortgage approval and issue youwith a loan pack. You will need to think about mortgage protection insurance and homeinsurance. You can organise these with your mortgage provider but it isadvisable to shop around. When your solicitor has checked the contract forsale, you will sign it and pay a deposit (less any booking fee).

There are many things to do when moving house, for example, redirecting yourpost and changing your details on the electoralregister. More information is available in our document on moving to a new home.

Shared Ownership Scheme This scheme enabled low-income purchasers to buy a proportion of a home to begin with, increasing in steps until the whole house was owned. It is no longer available to new applicants.

Local Authority Affordable Purchase Scheme The Local Authority Affordable Purchase Scheme is a new affordable housing scheme, which helps people on moderate incomes buy homes at reduced prices. The local authority takes a stake in your home, which covers the reduction in price.

Whether you want to relocate permanently or spend your holidays across the Irish Sea, we believe that buying a property in Ireland is a great idea. There are plenty of practicalities to moving, like a shared tongue (though it might sound more lyrical in an Irish accent) and short travel time, but there is also a beautiful countryside to explore and rich culture to experience.

It can be tempting, in the excitement, to immediately start viewing homes you initially like the look of. A lot of people do this, but it makes the search a lot longer. Why? They find that each home they view is not their ideal and they end up refining their criteria that bit more, so the goalposts are always on the move.

Make sure that you know approximately what your budget is right from the start, as, not only will this allow your estate agent to suggest affordable properties, but it will help you plan financially as you edge closer to moving day. Make sure that you include an extra 10% for buying costs.

Step back in time with an Irish holiday home in Leighlinbridge, located on the banks of the River Barrow. This lovely village is known for its winding streets and ancient ruins. There is a 14th century bridge still in perfect working order, and the Leighlinbridge Castle ruins date back to Norman times.

This small town of around 30,000 inhabitants has been attracting British buyers for some time. Wexford has a reputation for being one of the friendliest places in all of Ireland, so if you choose to visit or make it home, expect to strike up conversations with everyone you meet, many of whom are incredibly curious about who you are and what led you to their corner of the world. This is a lively spot on the water where freshly caught seafood is consumed by the bucket load. Fun fact: The Wexford coast is the ancestral home of the Kennedy Family. 041b061a72
