Mortgages available at Our Lady Crowned

Buying a house or renovating a property can be a stressful time. What to buy, how much is needed? How much to bid and when?

When you’ve finally found what you’re looking for and you need a mortgage, you want to deal with a lender you can trust.

Our Lady Crowned Credit Union (OLCCU) has recently announced that it is now offering CU Home mortgages. OLCCU can support you in getting your dream home with mortgages available up to €200,000 and offering a super low rate of 3.97 per cent annual percentage rate (APR).

OLCCU is entering the mortgage market as part of its ongoing commitment to tailoring services and products to the specific needs of its members. As local, ethical lenders, credit unions take the time to understand the member’s situation. A member of staff will ensure that the loan is suitable to the member’s needs and their financial circumstance. Loretto Dennehy McCarthy, Manager of OLCCU said: “We know our members trust us and we want them to know that we can now offer mortgages. We are inviting members to get in touch with us, or pick up the phone and call us, about getting a mortgage.

“Whether it’s a new house or renovations to an existing house, our home mortgage loans are designed to give members the finance to make their dreams come true.” She added: “Our CU Home mortgages are designed to meet the needs of our members, lending decisions are made at local level and our knowledgeable, friendly staff will guide you through the mortgage process.
