Boiler scrappage scheme .Scotland

Boiler Scrappage Scheme for landlords
The Scottish Government introduced the boiler scrappage scheme in November and up to 750 landlords in Scotland can claim £400 off the cost of a new boiler.

The Scottish Government boiler scrappage scheme offers cashback to encourage private landlords to install better boilers for tenants.

Landlords can apply for the Boiler Scrappage Scheme by calling the Scottish Government's one stop shop on home energy - the Home Energy Hotline - on 0800 512 012.

The scheme will be open to landlords with the most inefficient, G-rated boilers. If eligible, landlords will receive a £400 voucher towards the installation of a new boiler. The scheme will operate on a first come, first served basis. New boilers must be installed within 12 weeks of requesting the voucher.

The Hotline provides a range of advice on schemes for landlords. Landlords can also access interest-free loans for energy efficiency microgeneration measures through the small business loan scheme and get tax breaks through the Landlord's Energy Savings Allowance.
