The Scottish Government provides funded loans that help landlords improve the energy efficiency of their properties and meet minimum standards. There are 3 types of loan categories that landlords can apply:
Energy efficiency improvements
Renewable systems (including energy storage systems and district heating scheme connections)
- Secondary improvements
Who can apply?
Registered private landlords, acting either as an individual or a business that owns privately rented properties, can apply. Funding is only available for businesses owned:
- by an individual in their capacity as a sole trader
- by some or all of the members of an incorporated association in trust for the association
- by either: a limited company; a limited liability partnership; a trust; a partnership; a registered society under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014; or a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation, or
- in any other capacity which Energy Saving Trust or the Scottish Government considers to be a business
We’ll only accept applications from individuals or official representatives of the business that will own the equipment, materials and property at the time the loan is paid.
We will not accept applications from installers, property developers, letting agents or self-builders.
- We will only offer funding to landlords for improvements to domestic dwellings in Scotland which are listed on the Scottish Landlord Register and are not used as a holiday or second home.
- The property must be registered with the Scottish Assessors Association as paying domestic council tax rates.
- The property must already be built, not under construction.
- SProperties must be currently occupied by at least one tenant or will have at least one tenant in place within 30 days of the loan being paid.
