New! Energy Efficiency Discount

Today we’re launching a Buy-to-Let Energy Efficiency Discount to help landlords make improvements to their properties to make them more efficient and consequently, more environmentally sound.

Following our research into the proposed changes to energy performance regulations, Shawbrook is more committed than ever to support landlords in becoming more energy efficient, protecting their portfolios, while also contributing to a greener future for all.

We plan to continue to improve our proposition to ensure we can keep making a difference, and the Energy Efficiency Discount is just the first step in a long line of creative solutions in the pipeline.

Buy-to-Let Energy Efficiency Discount.

Available across the entire Shawbrook Buy-to-Let offering, all new cases submitted with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of ‘C’ or above will be eligible for our Buy-to-Let Energy Efficiency Discount on the arrangement fee.

The following discounts will apply to our 1.50% standard arrangement fee:

EPC Rating


New Arrangement Fee










For example, on a £250k mortgage, a customer could save up to £1,500 on the arrangement fee upfront.

In addition, landlords can apply for a partial refund on the arrangement fee if the EPC rating has improved to at least a ‘C’ post-completion. Upon submitting a new certificate to us, we will issue a partial refund to the customer, plus the cost of the new EPC (up to £100). The refund amount is based on the same discount percentages outlined above.

Sustainable solution with Bridge-to-term.

Are your clients looking to purchase an investment property that falls outside of the eligibility for the Energy Efficiency Discount? With our unregulated bridging products that include a refurbishment element, your customers can make energy efficient improvements to their property before transitioning to a Buy-to-Let mortgage with us.

Not only that, if your customer moves from our bridging finance to one of our buy-to-let products, they will be eligible for a discounted arrangement fee of 0.75% (usually 1.50%) and if their property is rated C or above, they will also benefit from the Energy Efficiency Discount as well. Unregulated bridging offering.
