You must live in your own home or one you rent from a private landlord.
Different rules apply to householders in council properties and housing association properties.
Proof of ownership or rental for your home
Your ECO Accredited boiler installer or storage heater installer will require documentary evidence that you live in the property for which you are applying for an Affordable Warmth Scheme Storage Heater Grant or Boiler Grant.
This may be the deeds to your home if you own it, a mortgage agreement if applicable or a copy of your rental agreement.
Your Landlord’s Approval
If you rent your home you will need your landlord’s approval for the installation of a new boiler or storage heaters but this will be organised by your installer.
