EBS mortgage FAQs

How long will EBS take to approve my mortgage application?

EBS will acknowledge receipt of your application within three working days. They will then check it over and let you know within a further three days if anything is missing.

When they have everything they need, it usually takes ten working days to decide whether or not to approve you for a mortgage.

Can I pay off my EBS mortgage early?

If you have a variable rate mortgage, you have more flexibility to pay part or all of your mortgage off early without penalty, but always check.

If you have a fixed rate mortgage, paying off too much before the product term ends may result in you being charged an early breakage cost, which may be expensive.

How do I get cashback on my EBS mortgage?

You can get up to 3% cashback on your mortgage if you’re:

  • Buying your first home
  • Switching your mortgage
  • Moving house

Here are the full terms and conditions.

You can also get a cashback sum if you switch your current mortgage to EBS, and select the Green 4 Year Fixed Rate Mortgage.

The EBS Green 4 Year Fixed Rate Mortgage Switcher offer is available to customers who:

  • Are moving their existing mortgage from another lender to EBS
  • Are eligible for the EBS Green 4 Year Fixed Rate Mortgage (including a BER rating of B3 or higher)
