The application is always in the name of the householder, i.e., your tenant and they can apply for a Storage Heater Grant HERE or a Boiler Grant HERE.
Alternatively, you as landlord, can register your interest in a Storage Heater Grant HERE or a Boiler Grant HERE. Please ensure that you have your tenant’s permission to pass on their personal details to us (we are registered under Data Protection Acts to receive and pass on such information).
Affordable Warmth Scheme Landlord Grants are awarded to the householder, which in the case of a privately rented property, is the tenant.
However, as a private landlord you can register your interest in the Affordable Warmth Scheme if there are faulty electric storage heaters or a faulty central heating boiler in your rental property.
For the purpose of Affordable Warmth Scheme Landlord Grants, the tenant is the applicant and it is they who need to satisfy State Benefit qualifying criteria (which can be found below).
What if my rental property is empty?
Affordable Warmth Scheme Qualifying Criteria requires that there is a tenant living in your property at the time of the ECO Grant Application. There must be a valid tenancy agreement in place and the tenant’s State Benefit award letter must show the rented property’s address.
