Green mortgages tend to offer more favourable terms such as a slightly lower interest rate, cashback when you take out the mortgage, or both.
Lenders are prepared to offer incentives like this because they increasingly see energy-efficient properties as less risky purchases and more likely to hold their value.
For homeowners, there’s a double saving as the energy efficiency of a new home should mean lower bills, while the green mortgage may come at a more competitive rate, reducing the monthly mortgage repayments.

As with a standard mortgage, with a green mortgage you still borrow a large sum of money and pay it back in monthly instalments. Failure to pay your mortgage may result in your home being repossessed.
