London Landlords benefit from grants for energy efficiency
Posted on 06/01/2015 by Sulgrave Estates
Several London Boroughs are offering grants to Landlords to install energy efficient measures in their rental properties. The grants will be up to £6,000 per property and are available in Camden, Enfield, Islington, Hackney and Haringey. A Green Deal assessment is required to access the grant and eligible measures include boiler replacement, wall insulation, draught proofing and roof insulation, electrical heating upgrades and replacement glazing or secondary glazing.
This is a great opportunity for landlords to get their rental properties up to an EPC rating of “E” before the new regulations in 2018 which will state “E” as the minimum acceptable rating required with “F” and “G” being outlawed. It is possible this regulation may be brought forward to 2016.
The grant is on a first come first served basis until March 2015 or while funding lasts.
