Molo partners with Propflo to boost energy efficiency in buy-to-let’s
London, September 20th, 2023. Molo Finance, the UK’s first fully digital mortgage lender, is excited to announce its strategic collaboration with Propflo, an award-winning AI-driven proptech startup. This partnership will offer an end-to-end solution for landlords seeking to undertake energy efficiency upgrades.
Following a highly successful trial during the summer, which saw an increase in average engagement rates, Molo will introduce GreenVal, a cutting-edge tool from Propflo. The innovative tool is designed to help landlords become compliant with Energy Efficiency Standards and offers a range of options and recommendations for compliance, as well as direct quotes from reputable national suppliers.
The tool integrates with Propflo’s HomeHub, where customers can effortlessly:
- Manage quotes and improvement works in one place
- Securely store key property documents like warranties
- Set important reminders like gas safety servicing
- Use smart home technology to monitor real-time energy efficiency and risks like mould
There is growing pressure to retrofit inefficient properties in order to meet the UK’s legally binding Net Zero by 2050 target and to increase energy security. With nearly 20% of carbon emissions coming from residential property and £117bn of energy imported last year, many lenders are tightening lending criteria for inefficient properties and the Labour Party is promising to re-introduce Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards.
The tool will be sent to existing customers and accessible via Molo’s website, giving landlords the insights to improve the EPC rating of their property.
It’s beneficial for landlords, who, with Molo, have a platform to effortlessly get a mortgage or remortgage online for their buy-to-let and begin the process of making their investments more energy efficient.
