Author, The Mortgage Coach


Owning your own home or trading up to one that suits your changing family circumstances doesn’t have to be a dream. There are benefits to getting financially ‘fit’ and being favourably considered by multiple lenders as a good risk; being able to select the best offer from a range of lenders and ensuring a speedy application process with minimal time wastage.


The Mortgage Coach covers the valuable information you need to get mortgage ready and takes you through the entire process from:

  • Covering Central Bank of Ireland criteria and exemptions; borrowing limits, understanding your current credit rating and more… 
  • Determining the best options across ALL categories from First-Time Buyers to Down-Sizers. 
  • The legal process right through to the engineer’s report and options if you’re in negative equity. 
  • FAQs, online resources and a quick reference Glossary which add to the book’s user-friendly structure.
