What is a Green Mortgage?

“Broadly speaking, there are two types of Green Mortgage. We can provide Green Mortgage Advice on both of the following types:

  • Green Mortgages that reward you for carrying out home improvements that make your home more “green”. The lender will generally offer you a discounted interest rate or cash back if you upgrade your home’s efficiency. This could include things like installing solar panels, putting in more energy efficient windows or changing your heating system to an air source or ground source heat pump.
  • Green Mortgages that offer you rewards for having an energy-efficient home. You’ll need to supply the EPC and evidence that the home has an EPC rating of A or B. If you qualify you’ll get cashback or a better interest rate on your mortgage or in some cases remortgage.
