Free Boiler Scheme for Private Landlords
If you’re a landlord in need of help with a new boiler, help is available today, as you only need one person in any household to be in receipt of one of a range of benefits in order to qualify under the Government’s ECO Scheme. As part of this initiative, the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers are obliged to fund the installation of energy saving boilers for those who have boilers more than 5 years old.
Think how much stress and hassle a new free ‘A’ rated boiler will save you, let alone the savings. A new oil, gas or LPG boiler could be in excess of £2000 to £5000 after installation and may save your tenants as much as £300 per year on their energy bill. Other advantages include your property’s EPC rating increasing making it more attractive to prospective tenants or a purchaser should you wish to sell at some point.
How Do I Join the Free Boiler Scheme for Landlords?
Free Boiler Grants have supplied over 60,000 residents across the UK with new energy-efficient boilers. If there are private tenants within your home who are in receipt of the following income-related benefits, then you could be eligible to join the scheme too. The six qualifying benefits include:
- Income-related ESA
- Income-related JSA
- Pension Credits
- Universal credit
- Working tax credits
- Child tax credits
As well as receiving benefits, there are two other factors which must be met in order for you to fully qualify for the free boiler scheme for landlords. Firstly, your boiler must be at least five years in age. This is because it’s a lot more worthwhile to repair newer boiler models rather than completely replacing them. Secondly, you should bear in mind that Free Boiler Grants only work with private lets and homeowners.
To determine whether you’re eligible for our landlord boiler replacement grants, just enter the postcode of your property on our site and then fill out our 60-second application form.
