Sandwell MBC help with new central heating systems

MLAS MEMBERS IN SANDWELL  MBC AREA:

HELP WITH NEW CENTRAL HEATING SYSTEMS

Sandwell Council is offering assistance to landlords who are current MLAS members to install new central heating systems. This offer is limited to 13 properties only, which must be in Sandwell. The assistance will come as an interest free loan, to be registered as a charge against the property. In other words, you don’t need to pay it back until the property is sold (unless there is a breach of the agreement). The heating systems are installed by Sandwell’s approved contractors and new boilers come with minimum 5 year parts and labour warranty. As the new heating will increase the property’s value, any landlord qualifying for help under the scheme will benefit substantially.

This is a part of our commitment to improving the overall standard of housing in Sandwell, and helping vulnerable residents to stay warm in their homes. Good, new, cost-efficient heating not only keeps the tenant happy and safe from a range of cold-related illnesses.It also helps protect your property from issues like damp and condensation. This means you’re less likely to be landed with a hefty maintenance bill for the system itself.

To qualify for help under the scheme

  1. The tenant’s annual income must be below £16,200 and one of the following criteria must apply to one or more of the household members; (a) they are aged over 60 or under 19 (b) they are registered disabled (c) they must have a chronic health condition
  2. There is a minimum of six months remaining on the tenancy
  3. There must be no Category 1. Hazards in the property.

Landlords can only apply for help on one property and don’t forget its limited to just 13. We expect interest to be high, so if you are interested, please download and complete application below as soon as possible and return it to elizabeth_mooney@sandwell.gov.uk or by post to:
