Changes to Ecology mortgages – self-build and conversions

20 July 2015

We are experiencing very high levels of demand for our self-build and custom-build mortgages, so we are currently focussing on projects aiming for Passivhaus, AECB Silver, EPC A+ and Code for Sustainable Homes levels 5 and 6 – as these bring the greatest gains in terms of carbon reductions. If your project meets these criteria, we would be pleased to hear from you.

We are also not currently accepting conversion proposals, where dwellings are being created from non-domestic buildings such as barns.

At the present time we are only considering applications from customers approaching us direct – that is, not as introductions from third-parties.

If you consider that your project is of particular ecological merit yet would be excluded by the above, we would be pleased to receive details.
