Is it nice to live there? I already payed the booking fee and am starting the process.
Mind you, we finished our process just before the lockdown, so it might be a poor measuring stick.
But for us the mortgage was "fine".
We started the process a long time before, and the first steps seemed a tad slow. But after we made the offer, then BOI was rather good.
DCC on the other hand...
I think it took them nearly 3 months to get the documents our solicitor was asking them for.
I guess it might be faster now, since they must already have the documents easier at hand?
But then again, who knows how lockdown affects them?
We are loving it here.
The neighbourhood is even better than we expected.
The only thing I don't love is that there are no shops really close by. If you need just a loaf of bread, there's Centra, which is often crowded, or at least 1km walk to Dunnes.
Not many restaurants either.
But with lockdown they'd all be closed anyway? =)
