Green Mortgages – good for the climate and good for your pocket
Great news for climate conscious mortgage borrowers who can now reduce their carbon footprint and their mortgage costs with a green mortgage. AIB have recently launched a new 4 year fixed green mortgage through their broker channel brand Haven.
Green mortgage rates reward customers with energy efficient homes. Typically, with standard mortgages, rates are higher for customers with a high LTV and lower for those with a relatively low LTV. However, Haven now offers a standard green mortgage rate of 2.15% across a 4-year, fixed term irrespective of loan-to-value. There is also €2,000 cash back offered to customers who choose a green mortgage. According to Haven, a customer with a €300,000 mortgage over a 25-year term can save up to €155 per month on repayments – amounting to €1,860 per year.
As Haven is exclusively accessible to Brokers, customers who wish to avail of these rates must process their mortgage application or switch through a broker as it is not openly available to the Irish market.
