The SAP rating must be listed on the government register within two weeks of completion of your client’s mortgage.

There’s nothing you or your client need to do. We’ll automatically check the register following completion and issue the cashback if the property qualifies.

The cashback will be paid into the bank account used to make the mortgage payments, within four weeks of completion.

Note: Nationwide is not responsible for the registration or accuracy of the EPC.
