Foreign Currency Mortgage

Foreign Currency Mortgage

Are you looking to purchase a home in Northern Ireland and earn in Euro or US Dollar? Or perhaps you are planning to re-mortgage and hold an asset (repayment strategy) in Euro or US Dollar? Then a Foreign Currency Mortgage from Progressive may suit you.

At Progressive, we can facilitate your mortgage requirements with a Foreign Currency Mortgage. Your Mortgage balance will be in Sterling and monthly repayments will be in Sterling also.

Foreign Currency Mortgages are available to customers who are purchasing a home, remortgaging, or financing a self-build, in Northern Ireland.

Eligibility

You may be eligible for a Progressive Foreign Currency Mortgage if you are purchasing a home, remortgaging, or financing a self-build in Northern Ireland and:

  • Are paid in Euro or US Dollar

Or

  • You have an asset (repayment strategy) held in Euro or US Dollar which you will use to repay an interest only mortgage balance.

 

The Society can only accept one of the two foreign currencies per application. Therefore, the following applications can be accepted:

  • One applicant earns in Sterling and the other applicant earns in Euro
  • One applicant earns in Sterling and the other applicant earns in US Dollar
  • Both applicants earn in Euro
  • Both applicants earn in US Dollar

Representative Example

Based on an assumed start date of 14/8/2019, a mortgage of £68,000 payable over 25 years, initially on our discounted variable rate of 2.99% for 2 years, followed by our Standard Variable Rate currently 5.00% for the remaining 23 years, would require 24 monthly payments of £322.11 and 276 monthly payments of £392.09.  The total amount payable would be £115,947.48 made up of the loan amount plus interest of £47,947.48.  The overall cost for comparison is 4.73% APRC.

YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE.

Further details on Progressive’s Foreign Currency Mortgage

The only accepted Foreign Currencies are Euro and US Dollar.


Either a Foreign Currency income or a Foreign Currency asset can be accepted per application, not both. For example, if you earn in Euro and have an asset held in Euro and would like to use both to repay your mortgage, that couldn’t be accepted.


Fluctuations in the exchange rate of the foreign currency may affect your mortgage repayments and/or the value of any assets you hold in a foreign currency. The society will continuously review the exchange rate and will contact you by letter if the exchange rate moves against you by 20% or more.
