25% Cashback with HEEPS

Apply for an interest free loan for installing a variety of energy efficiency measures including a new boiler.

Are you an owner occupier or private sector landlord in Scotland looking to improve your property? Home Energy Scotland can help.

Through their HEEPS loan scheme you could get up to £15,000 per property, and landlords with multiple properties are eligible for up to £100,000 in total. The repayment period varies based on the amount you intend to borrow but those taking out higher value loans will be able to pay back over 10 years.

25% Cashback Special Offer

From 3rd October 2016 for a limited time and subject to available funding, applicants are eligible to receive a grant of 25% of their quoted costs, up to a maximum of £3,750. Applicants must be able to complete works and claim funding by 10th March 2017 to benefit from this offer.  Should you qualify for the offer, WRB Gas will ensure installation in time.

Typical example:

Boiler Replacement – £2400.00

YOU SAVE £600.00!!

(Payment to WRB Gas for work carried out is in full. Cashback is claimed through Home Energy Scotland upon completion)

To accommodate this change the HEEPS loan will be reduced to a maximum of 75% of the cost of eligible works.  The maximum loan value remains at £15,000.

Applicants are also entitled to claim up to £150 towards the cost of the Green Deal Advice Report that is required before a loan can be approved.

This special offer will also be available to private sector landlords for a maximum of 3 properties.  If applying for work at more than 3 properties loan funding, the interest free loan will still be available for 100% of the eligible costs, up to a maximum of £15,000 per property.

You will need to obtain a Green Deal Advice Report (GDAR) for your property, and it is a requirement of this scheme that the measure you wish to install is recommended on your GDAR. You will be asked to submit this after your initial application, assuming you pass your credit check.  Under the new cashback special offer you will be eligible to claim up to £150 towards the cost of your GDAR, even if you do not go ahead and complete any work at your property. WRB Gas can carry out the GDAR at your request.

If you are a Private Sector Landlord, for more information, or to speak to a landlord specialist, please contact Home Energy Scotland on 0808 808 2282.

Once your application has been received, we will assess your eligibility and carry out affordability and credit checks. If you pass these checks, you will be sent a letter explaining you need to arrange for your GDAR to be completed at your property. You can then send details of this to the Energy Saving Trust, and assuming it meets the scheme’s requirements, your loan offer can then be issued.

You must not start work until you have received a loan offer.

If your loan application is successful and you receive funding, your loan will include an administrative fee, which will be included in your monthly loan repayments.  The administrative fee will be 1.5% of the total loan and grant funding you are awarded, up to a maximum of £150.  You will be issued with an offer of funding which will be valid until 10th March 2017.
