Greener mortgages - Cashback products for Energy Efficient Homes

Earn £250 cashback for having an energy efficient home


  • Customers purchasing or remortgaging a residential property with an A or B Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating could be eligible for a product with a £250 cashback.

    These products are available for the purchase or remortgage of a main residence only, second home loans and self build scheme properties are not eligible.

    Green products will be labelled 'Green AB EPC' on sourcing systems and when submitting an application care must be taken to select the correct cashback product code which will start with ‘G’.

    We will validate the EPC as part of the application process. Proof of the EPC must be retained on your file but only needs to be uploaded with the application if requested. New Build properties may not have an initial EPC rating, in this instance customers should obtain a Predicted Energy Assessment (PEA) or a Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) from the builder and this is acceptable. If an EPC certificate has expired or a rating is not available for a particular property, then these products cannot be selected.

    The EPC rating of a property can be checked online via find an energy certificate, or for Scottish properties via the Scottish EPC Register.

    The cashback will be paid upon mortgage completion via the conveyancer. This offer can be withdrawn at any time.

    Please see our Criteria section for further information on EPCs and our product guide (PDF, 905KB) for full product details.
