We understand that our customers are busy, and require full mortgage approval when chasing a property that they wish to secure. This is where Bank of Ireland differs. We provide full mortgage approval in 24 hours, though complex cases may take a little longer. This is a formal mortgage approval, following a full credit assessment - it is not just an approval in principal.
