Getting a Mortgage & a Credit Scoring in Ireland

18.05.2020 12:46 #1

I moved to Ireland from U.K. and been living here over 4 years. I’m looking in to buying a house here in Ireland but I already have a house with a mortgage in U.K. which I took six years ago and is not paid off yet.

I would like to know that if I apply for a mortgage in Ireland would the bank require a credit score report for me from U.K.?

Will I be class as first time buyer in Ireland even though I have a house with a mortgage over in U.K.?

Also, will the Irish bank require to check with my current mortgage lender over in U.K.?
