I've a number of questions on mortgages: Q1. If I own a house in Ireland and 'retire' to Australia, can I go to an Aus bank and remortgage the Irish place to buy a modest place over there ? Q2. Were the effort described in Q1 successful, can I assume this remortgage would be noted in the Registry of Mortgages in both countries ? Q3. Can any nosy Irishman who is aware of my manoeuvre get a copy of the remortgage details from the Aus Registry of Mortgages for a small fee ?
