There are a number of grants available from the UK Government to assist people to improve their homes.
The main priority for this scheme has always been heating and insulation which will assist people get the most value and benefit for their families.
Grants For The Private Rented Sector
There have been grants available for energy efficiency improvements for many years including grants for heating and insulation improvements. It, however, has been a misconception that landlords could not access the schemes to improve the energy efficiency of their property portfolio.
This post is focusing on the private rented sector where many residents are in fuel poverty so it is only right that the majority of the cash should be spent here.
Why Are Home Improvement Grants Available ?
The government has recognised that after many years of neglect, many rented properties need their insulation and heating upgraded and is now providing thousands of £ worth of FREE funding to assist this sector
Many of these homes will be in receipt of low income benefits so will qualify for assistance.
Home Improvements Grants For Landlords & Tenants
There are many government funded grants still available to landlords and tenants to help improve the energy efficiency of their rented properties which in turn will save lots of carbon for the UK as well as reducing ever increasing fuel bills.
At the moment all Private Rented Properties need to be a minimum EPC Rating of E to be able to be fit for renting out.
This rating is due to change to Rating D by 2025 so any properties rated D , E , F &G will no longer be legally able to be rented out.
Making use of these grants while they are still available makes good sense and this post is especially to increase awareness.
