12th May 2009 16:33My brother said his mortgage interest relief was stopped this month which was over €100 of a difference. Anyway (try not to confuse anyone ) he only had his loan over 2 years and it was a re-mortgage. When I said I thought that he should still be entitled to mortgage interest relief, he rang the Ulster Bank who confirmed that they had stopped it and that NO he wasn't entitled to it. Still not convinced he rang the Revenue and they confirmed that he WAS still entitled to it. it was only those who transferred mortgages or lenders or those who had original loans for over the 7 years didn't get it. Those who re-mortgaged, had new loans (regardless of it being your 1st, 2nd or 3rd load), or loans under 7 years we still entitled to the interest relief. He then rang the Ulster Bank back to confirm what the Revenue told him, and they still sounded unsure and said they would look into it for him and that anything taken from him would be paid back. Just thought I should warn ye to watch out for this. I know there seems to be a lot of confusion as to who is entitled to it and who isn't.
