BuildStore Eco Accelerator Mortgage

BuildStore Eco Accelerator Mortgage

BuildStore recently launched an exclusive new Eco Accelerator Mortgage with an attractive, discounted interest rate, in partnership with the Melton Mowbray Building Society and leading environmental builders' merchant, Ecomerchant.

This new eco mortgage is for self build, renovation, conversion and refurbishment projects and it's the latest to be added to the BuildStore exclusive Accelerator scheme.

The Eco Accelerator Mortgage does not simply focus on energy performance and generation, but also on the building fabric too. It promotes healthy living by rewarding you with a discounted interest rate for the lifetime of your mortgage, when you select sustainable building materials with a reduced global impact, while also ensuring your property is energy efficient. It's a simple approach that goes a step further to minimising global impact.

Exclusively available from BuildStore, the eco mortgage also offers the unique added benefit of advance stage payments - ensuring you have the cash to pay for your land, build and materials ahead of every stage of your project.
