Green mortgages

Some mortgage lenders offer environmentally-friendly mortgage deals, or will lend on eco-friendly properties.

Norwich & Peterborough Building Society, for example, offers a green deal which plants trees for each borrower, while The Ecology Building Society will consider financing eco new-build, renovation, conversion or eco refurb projects.

If you are considering taking out an environmentally-friendly mortgage, you could approach a building society or speak to a fee-free adviser for more information.
