Energy Saving Grants are able to help Landlords obtain funding to improve the energy efficiency ratings of their properties, to help comply with the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES).
The MEES regulations currently require all domestic rental properties to have a minimum EPC rating of an ‘E’. However, this is proposed to increase to a minimum of a ‘C’ rating by 2025.
There are numerous Government initiatives available to help Landlords comply with the MEES regulations.
Tenants do not necessarily need to be in receipt of any benefits to qualify for funding.
The main requirements for the current grant schemes are that the property needs to be occupied and that the property doesn’t have any Central Heating system installed. There is funding available for the following energy efficiency measures:
– Electric Storage Heaters
– Central Heating Systems (Mains gas or alternatively LPG if mains gas is not available)
– Wall Insulation (both Solid wall insulation and Cavity Wall Insulation)
– Loft Insulation
– Room in Roof Insulation
– Solar PV (if the property has electric heating and the roof is suitable)
The amount of funding available varies from one property to another and is calculated on the amount of Carbon that will be saved by installing the insulation or heating measure. We arrange a free survey of your rental property and guide you through the grant application process. You do not have to pay us for this service and the only paperwork you would need to complete is a Landlord permission form to allow for any work to be carried out.
Please note that the funding does not currently allow for gas or oil boilers to be replaced, but this could change in the future. The grants are constantly changing and are allocated on a first come first served basis. Please get in touch with us if you would like to apply for the funding.
