As a landlord you may be aware that there is a ‘minimum level of energy efficiency’ standard (EPC band E) when it comes to letting out a property.
Applications are now open for the Green Homes Grant Scheme which allows landlords and homeowners to apply for a grant of up to £10,000 towards the cost of making homes more energy efficient.
Under the scheme landlords and homeowners in England can apply for a voucher to fund at least two-thirds of the cost of hiring tradespeople to upgrade the energy performance of their homes, up to a maximum contribution of £5,000 or up to £10,000 for lower-income households.
The aim of the Green Home Grant is to upgrade over 600,000 homes across England, with the UK Government saying that this will save households hundreds of pounds per year on their energy bills.
