Green Reward (house purchase)

If your client is purchasing an energy efficient property, they may be eligible for a Green Reward cashback of up to £500.

You don’t need to do anything as we’ll automatically check the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) register following completion and issue the cashback if the property qualifies*.

Green Reward cashback:

  • is payable on both New Build and second-hand properties, provided they meet eligibility criteria
