Why a green mortgage could help you get moving

Some UK banks and building societies offer 'green mortgages' to encourage buyers to purchase more energy-efficient homes.  By doing this, the purchasers are likely to benefit from reduced energy costs and therefore may be more financially able to pay back their mortgage loan.

The bank or building society will usually offer some form of incentive to purchasers taking a green mortgage - this is typically either a preferential interest rate, a higher loan amount, or a cashback incentive.

High street lenders Nationwide, NatWest, Barclays and Virgin Money offer green mortgages as well as some smaller online lenders.  Generally, your new home will need to have an EPC rating of A or B to be eligible for a green mortgage.

All Shanly homes have an EPC rating of A or B so not only could you potentially save money on your energy bills*, you could also save money on your mortgage with a green mortgage.

With homes available to move into now, you could be saving money sooner than you think.
