Whether you’re looking to buy a new home or remortgage your existing one, it’s usually a time when you start to think about what home improvements you want to make. If better energy efficiency is top of your list, now might be the time to ask your adviser about our green eKo Cashback Mortgage.
All you have to do is improve your home's energy efficiency rating by moving to the next Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) banding e.g. D to C OR increasing your rating by at least 10 Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) points. Then just send us a new EPC within 12 months of your mortgage completion date. If you've made all your mortgage payments on time and in full, we'll pay you a lump sum of £1,000 into the bank account associated with your direct debit mortgage payments.
We’ll pay you £1,000 cashback when you improve your home’s energy efficiency rating by moving to the next Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) banding OR increasing your rating by at least 10 Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) points.†
SAP points contribute towards a home’s overall EPC which measures the energy efficiency rating on a scale of A to G with A being the most efficient. Most UK homes are in bands D to E and every time you make an improvement to your home that’s energy efficient you increase your SAP points. It could be as simple as changing your light bulbs to LED’s, installing a new boiler or getting loft and/or cavity wall insulation.
