By carrying out improvements to your property during the lifetime of your Buy-to-Let mortgage with us that has resulted in an improved EPC rating, you could be eligible for a partial refund of our arrangement fee**. The same percentage discounts shown above apply to the refund. 

** Applicable only to new Buy-to-Let mortgages completed on and after 6 May 2022
