Funding the future

 

Working together to support carbon neutrality and a sustainable property market.  

  

We know that here at West One we are one influential part of an ever-changing property finance and housing market. This campaign launch is about taking responsibility for the changes we can make to have a positive impact on sustainability and carbon reduction within the property and housing markets.

  

 

Whilst we are one influential and moving part of the chain, we cannot change the whole market alone. However, we feel we have a responsibility to positively impact the space we work in where we can. We hope others would feel the same about doing the right thing for future generations. 

  

What are we launching?

 

We are developing and releasing a series of new products aimed at brokers and clients who are looking to fund projects with sustainability and carbon reduction measures in mind. The first of these products is our Green buy-to-let product.

 

A summary of the changes is noted below: 

 

  • NEW  green products available for Standard Property types 
  • Available for properties with an EPC rating of A-C 
  • Not available for new build properties ( Conversions are permitted) 
  • Rates initially available at 65% LTV and 70% LTV 
  • 2-year and 5-year fixed-rate options are available 
  • Rates start from 3.04% with a 1.25% fee 
  • Minimum loan size £50k, Maximum loan size £1.5m  

Why now? 

 

Our market is ever-changing and we know we have to act now to play our part in the future we all wish to achieve. As a business drive sustainability internally and are committed to positively impacting the future of our team, those who we do business with and the industry we sit in. Our business’s ESG policy and plan are core to our mission and help drive our strategies – small changes now will make a big difference in the future.  

 

How are we making a difference? 

 

We are not only researching and developing products to drive change, we are also committed to driving carbon neutrality. Our products that we will launch within Funding the future offer our clients an option to choose more sustainable products and make positive changes themselves, to further enhance this, for every product sold within this initiative, West One will offset one ton of carbon and support the government's targets for carbon neutrality.
