Hampshire Trust Bank launches EPC hybrid product for refurbs
Hampshire Trust Bank (HTB) has introduced Bridge EPC Refurb, an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) -friendly product for landlords looking to refurbish.

The hybrid product consists of a six-month bridging loan followed by a term loan. The Bank will discount the standard rate by 0.2 per cent on achieving an EPC ‘C’ rating or above, with the client having six months to deliver the improvements. HTB will also pay for the new EPC certificate.

Louisa Sedgwick (pictured), managing director of specialist mortgages at Hampshire Trust Bank, said: “The 2025 deadline for EPCs to have a rating of C or above for new tenancies is fast-approaching and we are receiving an increasing number of enquiries from our broker partners who have clients looking to improve the energy efficiency of their properties.

“We are always striving to meet the demands of brokers and their clients and we believe we are meeting a real need with Bridge EPC Refurb acknowledging that the live challenge we face is within the UK’s existing housing stock.

“We have built this product in response to the growing requests from our intermediary partners ensuring they can offer a credible solution to landlords allowing them to focus on getting their properties up to fast-approaching energy efficiency standards.”
