Property finance platform, LendInvest, has announced the launch of a new product range that offers reduced rates and fees for environmentally friendly properties in its latest move to support sustainable landlords and reduce the environmental impact of the built environment.
The new EPiC catalogue seeks to go beyond a simple reward for properties with an EPC rating of C or above by incentivising borrowers to refurbish and increase the environmental efficiency of their properties.
Rates start at 2.65% for standard properties, 2.91% for small HMOs, and 3.49% for large HMOs, MUFBs and Holiday Lets.
The new EPiC range touches each area of LendInvest’s BTL suite, offering reduced rates for standard properties, HMOs, MUFBs and holiday lets.
LendInvest will offer a further 10bps reduction for borrowers transitioning from one of LendInvest’s Bridge or Development products if the property also meets the relevant green criteria.
Andy Virgo, Sales Director at LendInvest, said: “The launch of this product range is just the next step in the business’ strategy to reward and support borrowers who take their environmental responsibility seriously. As a lender that has offered green initiatives for a number of years now, we hope to broaden this offering in the future, as we continuously seek to work with funding partners that share our ethos.”
