Statement of Charges

We may earn our remuneration on the basis of fee, commission and any other type of remuneration, including a non-monetary benefit or on the basis of a combination of these methods. A non-monetary benefit will only be accepted if it enhances the quality of the service to our clients.

A summary of the details of all arrangements for any fee, commission other reward or remuneration paid or provided to us which have agreed with product providers is available in our office or on our website – www.omwins.ie.

In certain circumstances, it will be necessary to charge a fee for services provided. These are listed below.

Where it is not possible to provide the exact amount, we will provide you the method of calculation of the fee.

We may receive up to 1% of the loan for arranging mortgage finance. This commission is paid by the mortgage lender.

Information on the variation in levels of commission payable by the different creditors providing credit agreements being offered are available on request.

We charge a fee of €300 for advising on a mortgage application, this fee is non-refundable. This is not in any way an indication of mortgage/loan approval. Our fee will be notified to the lender who will include this fee into the calculation of the APRC (Annual Percentage Rate Charge).
Please note that lenders may charge specific fees in certain circumstances and if this applies, these fees will be specified in your Loan Offer. You have the right to pay a fee separately and not include it in the loan. Typically, this situation arises in relation to specialist lending.
If we provide mortgage advice and obtain a Loan Offer for you and you subsequently do not proceed with your mortgage application through our firm, we will charge you an arrangement fee of €300 for our services.
