Free Boiler Scheme for Landlord and Tenants

Free Boiler Scheme for Landlord and Tenants

I know that there are or have been schemes that offer free boilers to tenants on qualifying benefits but I can’t find one that seems genuine at the moment. The company’s that I contact seem to ask me to make a contribution of varying amounts between £600 & £800! Free Boiler Scheme

I have a house at the moment where the tenant would qualify & the boiler is playing up (there are no radiators either), the problem is that it has come at the worse possible time financially for me!

Any help would be very very much appreciated.

Thanks

Nigel

My own tenant has had a free boiler through helplink she works part time and claims HB along with the accompanying benefits.

The tenant originally applied through her energy company an appointment was made they do an EPC and eventually install the boiler for free.
the boiler was installed by Helplink and carries a 2 year guarantee which has benefited from two visits for small problems.
hope this is helpful

Thanks Peter,

I'm just waiting on the outcome from Norweb, will try Helplink if no luck from Norweb.

The schemes have been cut back. I have had 3 boilers from an installer last year. All semi's and well insulated with D/G. Just old non condensing boilers. The last one i did i had to pay £150. The others were totally free.

I asked for one last month, but again the house is too well insulated and D/G etc. so i cannot get an install at all.

They told me only badly insulated houses are qualifying now or big ones (over 4 beds).

Hi John,

Yes, from what I am learning, you seem to be spot on.

Thanks

Hi Nigel
I have also heard about this scheme and thought it was too good to be true but I have found this company Saving Energy Group and their blog post explaining how it works. I have filled out their application form to see if I qualify, which I think I do, maybe you could do this too? It seems that they sort it all out so really easy.
Here is the blog post: http://www.savingenergygroup.org/blog/2017/oct/good-news-uk-landlords-last
Hope that helps and you can get a new free boiler!

Hi there,

I have used this scheme and it worked really well. Just a note to say that it is only available to landlords who have a property that is a house, it does not apply to flats.

I think you will find that none of these schemes are actually free. There will be some sort of payback or/and lock in policy and from my experience the payback will be much more than if paid up front in the first place. You may be able to get a loan on better terms.
