What Are Green Mortgages?

Green mortgages reward homeowners who purchase or upgrade their homes to be more energy-efficient. Lenders offer preferential terms such as lower interest rates, cash-back incentives, or increased loan amounts to homebuyers who can prove their property meets specific environmental standards. Carmichael Homes are determined to help new homeowners adopt eco-friendly practices and support the UK's net-zero objective.

Carmichael Homes and Green Mortgages

Through our partners at Mortgage Advice Bureau, Carmichael Homes offer green mortgages on their A-rated EPC homes, making it easier for buyers to secure eco-friendly properties. By opting for a green mortgage, homeowners can enjoy numerous benefits:

  1. Lower interest rates: Green mortgages often come with lower interest rates, resulting in reduced monthly repayments and long-term savings.
  2. Lower energy bills: Energy-efficient homes require less power for heating, cooling, and lighting, translating to reduced energy bills.
  3. Higher property value: As the UK approaches its net-zero target, eco-friendly homes become increasingly desirable and valuable.
  4. Greater stability: Green mortgages hold their value better during economic uncertainty, providing a more secure investment for homeowners.

Eligibility and Options

Carmichael Homes' properties are eligible for a green mortgage as they all have A-rated EPC homes. Homeowners with high EPC ratings can also consider remortgaging onto a green mortgage. This option can free up equity for making energy-efficient upgrades to the property. Of course, standard mortgage lending criteria will still apply.
