Amend an existing application

If you’ve recently applied for a first direct mortgage online and want to change the amount, term, type, or rate, that’s no problem at all. Simply follow these step-by-step instructions:

  • go to our ‘Find the mortgage for you’ tool
  • then ‘Find a new mortgage for you’
  • select the type of application you’re making
  • you’ll then be able to ‘Amend an existing application’
  • from there enter your new details and select ‘View available mortgages’
  • you can then choose your mortgage from the results by selecting ‘Full details’
  • now follow the on-screen instructions to confirm your change.

By following the above, you skip some of the pages that you already completed in your original application.

Please note: You'll need to complete a new mortgage application if you want to make any other changes to your online mortgage application or if your application was submitted more than 5 months ago. If you don't want to amend your interest rate but can't find the interest rate you originally applied for, please call us on 03 456 100 103†.
