Intermediaries have a growing share in the mortgage market in Ireland
In Ireland approximately 60% of all mortgages are sourced through authorised intermediaries.
This is set to grow to 70% within the next few years in line with trends in the United States and UK.
The need for independent advice and access to market knowledge is essential in order for you to make an informed decision on a particular mortgage product and mortgage provider.
We also provide independent advice in relation to the products that you need to have in conjunction with a mortgage such as Mortgage Protection cover and all protection products to protect you and your family. Please see our Lifecover section for further details.

The rate of interest you are charged is identical whether you go directly to a lender or deal through Whelan Mortgage Solutions. This is a key feature of the intermediary product and has fuelled the growth of the mortgage intermediary market.
By constantly monitoring the products on offer we can identify special products or rate offerings which in circumstances may have particular appeal to our clients.
Lenders lending criteria differ significantly
There is significant variation in lending practices between the mortgage lenders in Ireland.
These differences range from varying loan to value ratios to wide variations in the absolute amount a lender will advance because of the use of a range of different formulae in calculating how much you can borrow.

We have found that this is not always the case when you deal directly with some institutions.
