ok - does anyone now how this works.... I have perviously bought and sold a house in Dublin Husband and i have bought and soon to be selling a house in London If we bought in Dublin next year in just my husband's name would he qualify as a first time buyer - seeing as he has never bought property in Ireland??

Really? I never knew that. I always assumed it had to have been a house within the state.

When asked if you're a FTB just say "Yes". They don't have to look behind it then but if you say "well I used to have a property in another country but will lie to the Revenue" or words to that effect, they are obliged to inform the Revenue! As much of a Pain in the a&se as it is.
