Landlords, Do Your Tenants Qualify?

If you are the landlord, or landlady of a property and your tenant is in receipt of the correct combination of income-related benefits, then they could qualify for your old boiler to be replaced through a government grant. The Gas & LPG boiler which is currently installed must be 7+ years old and carry some sort of fault in order to qualify for funding.

So, if it's not you as landlord who pays to get it replaced, who will? The non-repayable grants are controlled by the 'Big Six' energy suppliers, so that's British Gas, EDF, E.ON, npower, Scottish Power and SSE. Because of the UK's ECO scheme (Energy Companies Obligation) they are now obliged to fund the installation of boilers and insulation in to homes which are most vulnerable, or most at risk. Millions of boilers have been installed already throughout the UK, and millions more could still qualify.

If you want to learn more about the ECO scheme, please visit the GOV.UK website. Boiler Grants are funded by the 'Affordable Warmth' part of the energy company obligation.

If your tenant claims the correct combination of benefits, not only could they save you thousands of pounds by helping you to get your old boiler replaced, but you'll also see some great benefits too and help you to avoid potential future issues.

In 2018 it will be illegal to ignore requests from your tenants about things that they would like improving in the property which they rent from you. So, if your boiler is on the brink and you've been avoiding the cost of getting it replaced, a grant through the ECO scheme could be right up your street. Also, your new A-rated boiler will boost your properties EPC ratings making it much more appealing to future tenants, and when you eventually come to sell your asset.

All boilers which are installed via a grant will be A-rated and carry a warranty on both the installation, and system. Now that's piece of mind!.

Who are Grant Compare?

We've been helping landlords, private tenants and home owners access governments funded grants to help reduce their bills, improve the efficiency of their homes and reduce their carbon footprints. So far, we've helped thousands of people and we've got nothing but glowing reviews.

How Do I Apply?

Unless you know the exact benefits which your tenant receives and have the paperwork to hand, we would recommend you get them to visit our website to apply themselves. This way the information is likely to be much more accurate and could stop any potential delays in their boiler grant application.

In order to proceed with a boiler grant, the tenant will need your written permission. This means that no work can be completed until you have overseen everything and are happy. Once you've signed on the dotted line (let's be honest, why wouldn't you?) then the boiler can be installed.

Once we've received your tenants application, we'll match them up to an installer in their area, they'll then contact both you and them to confirm the details and book a free energy survey of your property. Once they've talked you through the process, you can then book your installation. It's as simple as that.
