96FM Interview with Joey Sheahan

Below is an excerpt from an interview with Joey Sheahan from MyMortgages.ie on 96FM with PJ Coogan, discussing the possibility of getting mortgage approval while in receipt of Covid-19 state payments. See link below to hear the full interview.

‘…..Can you get a mortgage approved ? Yes you can. If your employer is on the Wage Subsidy Scheme or if you are on the (Pandemic) Unemployment Benefit, yes you will still get approved.

….You take a builder and somebody working in a bar earning €40, 000 a year each. They are currently both unemployed earning €350 a week, we can get approval for them based on their full wages. However, the bank will want them to produce a payslip later in the process before they release funds showing that they are back to work.

So yes, you still can get a mortgage approved. ……We have a number of banks that will approve on that basis’.
