Department of Housing, Planning, and Local Government
142. To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government the current wait time for approval of Rebuilding Ireland home loans by county; the number of applicants awaiting approval by county; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [17752/21]
The Rebuilding Ireland Home Loan scheme remains open for business. All local authorities are receiving and processing RIHL applications and are incorporating increased flexibility to accommodate applicants during the COVID 19 Pandemic.
It is anticipated that processing of a complete and valid application will take approximately 6-8 weeks. This period may vary during the current COVID-19 pandemic and depending on the local authority and the details of individual applications.
My Department does not collect information on the current wait times for approval or the number of applications awaiting approval.
