We will telephone your tenant to confirm which state benefits they receive and to check that any other related qualifying conditions are satisfied.
If your tenant qualifies for the Landlord Storage Heater Grant scheme, we will arrange for a local ECO Accredited Installer to survey the heating system and apply for ECO funding to replace the faulty storage heaters.
How long does the process take?
The whole process will take a few weeks but before the new electric storage heaters are installed your permission as owner or the property will be required. Also, as owner of the property, it is in your interest to keep in touch with your tenant throughout this process to ensure that it runs smoothly.
Who will own the new Electric Storage Heaters?
As owner of the property you will own the new electric storage heaters and if the tenant moves out, they cannot remove them. If the tenant moves to another rented property, they can apply again for a Storage Heater Grant or a Boiler Grant if the conditions apply.
What if I own other rental properties?
Each case is taken on it’s own merit and you can apply for a Landlord Storage Heater Grant or a Landlord Boiler Grant for other properties which you own. The main criteria for qualification are that the tenant receives the correct State Benefits and faulty storage heaters are installed in the property.
