I am in the process of switching my mortgage from BOI to Ulster bank. I have moved to Bordeaux two weeks ago to spend three months in intensive French classes. I thought all the paper work and signing off would be complete before I left, but delays along the way mean the paperwork is only ready to sign now. My question is do I have to go back to Ireland to sign the paperwork in the solicitors office, or could it be posted to me here, signed and returned, or scanned in and signed digitally online? I live three hours away from Dublin airport making it quite a trek home, and last minute flights are expensive, so I'm hoping there's a way do it without going back to Ireland.
