Landbay Launches New Green Mortgages

Landbay has today launched its first green mortgage range.

All green products offer a 0.1 per cent or 0.05 per cent reduction against their non-green counterparts, depending on the property’s energy rating.

By lowering rates in accordance with property EPC ratings, Landbay hopes to incentivise energy efficient rental properties as an attractive option for landlords.

Examples of the new rates include:

  • 5-year fixed rate with an EPC A/B rating – 3.15 per cent up to 65 per cent LTV, down from 3.25 per cent – 1.5 per cent fee
  • 5-year fixed rate with an EPC A/B rating – 3.25 per cent up to 75 per cent LTV, down from 3.35 per cent – 1.5 per cent fee
  • 5-year fixed rate with an EPC C rating – 3.20 per cent up to 65 per cent LTV, down from 3.25 per cent – 1.5 per cent fee
  • 5-year fixed rate with an EPC C rating – 3.30 per cent up to 65 per cent LTV, down from 3.35 per cent – 1.5 per cent fee

All green rates are available to properties that have been registered for over 24 months with an EPC rating of C and above.

Paul Brett, Managing Director, Intermediaries at Landbay, commented: “Properties being let by landlords are obliged to have at least an E rated EPC. However, the government has said it wants as many as possible to be upgraded to band C or above by 2030.  We hope our green mortgage range will go some way to help achieving that goal and incentivise more landlords to consider adding energy efficient properties to their portfolio.”
