Since April 2020, private landlords have been legally required to let properties with an EPC rating of of A, B, C, D or E.

The Warmer Homes scheme is designed to improve the energy efficientcy of privatly rented homes to provide an EPC rating of C or above. This is in line with the Government's committment to make the UK carbon neutral by 2050.

For private rental properties, eligibility for the Warmer Home programme is based on the tenant, so there needs to be a permanent tenant residing in the property who is happy to confirm their eligibility.

If the programme is applied for by the tenant, landlords are required to provide consent for any measures to go ahead and will be required to make a contribution. This contribution will differ on a case-by-case basis depending on the measures required. 

For on-gas homes, the total amount a private rental home can receive is £5,000. Where a measure costs more than £7,500, the landlord will have to pay the excess above £5k,

Here are some examples of landlord contributions for on-gas homes: 

LAD Phase 3 Funding    Minimum Landlord Contribution Total Cost
£1,000 £500


£2,000 £1,000


£3,000 £1,500


£4,000 £2,000


£5,000 £2,500



For off-gas homes, the landlord will be required to fund one third of the cost of the upgrades.

Here are some examples of landlord contributions if the maximum funding was provided, in accordance to the home's EPC rating and heating type:

How to apply:

You can also apply over the phone by calling 0800 038 5737.
