Boiler scrappage scheme - landlords can apply

Landlords are being reminded of the benefits of the Government’s boiler scrappage scheme, which was launched for households in England in January.

According to letting specialist, Leaders, private landlords can apply alongside homeowners.

For those with old G-rated boilers, it provides £400 towards the cost of a new energy efficient device.

Government figures put the potential saving per household at over £200 per year and the entire project, which involves removing 125,000 G-rated boilers, will save around 140,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year.

Leaders’ managing director, Paul Weller, comments: “Not only could this mean less in maintenance costs and hassle for our landlords, it will save our tenants a significant amount in energy costs.”

The firm says it has also negotiated additional discounts for its landlords through some of its gas contractors.
