I am currently mortgaging with Bank of Ireland to avail of their 3% cashback offer and lower rates. I own an old house (almost 200 years old) which I bought and completely renovated in 2012 and my new lender is insisting on a structural survey as a condition of the mortgage. I have received two quotes for this so far and I was floored when both came in around the 1k mark (inc VAT). This is way beyond what I have ever plaid for a survey in the past. Are these rates the norm does anyone know? Can anyone recommend someone cheaper?
seems high. half that would be reasonable
