Green Deal for Edinburgh Landlords

The Green Deal in Edinburgh helps you or your tenants make energy-saving home improvements, like replacing your old boiler with an new A rated boiler to make your rental property in Edinburgh more comfortable and more efficient for your tenants.

The person responsible for paying the electricity will pay for some or all of the improvements over time through their electricity bill. Repayments will be no more than what a typical household should save in energy costs (golden rule).

Improvements made under a Green Deal Plan, come from recommendations made by The Green Energy Co. The bill payer won’t be charged more than what a typical household is expected to save in energy costs. Of course, the actual savings will depend on how much energy is used at the property and the future prices of energy.


Five things you need to know

  1. The current electricity bill payer always pays the green deal repayments. If the property is left vacant, you will need to make the repayments until a new tenant moves in and starts paying the electricity bill.
  2. Your tenant needs your permission before taking out a green Deal. If your tenant wishes to take out a Green Deal Plan, they will first need your agreement to both the improvements and the financial aspects of the plan, like the amount of the repayments and how long repayments need to be paid for.
  3. You need the tenants permission before you take out a green Deal. Where the tenant is the electricity bill payer, they will need to make repayments for the Green Deal on their electricity bill. So you will need their express permission before taking out a Green Deal at the property.
  4. All improvements are quality assured. All improvements made under the Green Deal are completed by Green Deal Installers. This means the work is completed by professionals that meet Green Deal standards and are authorised to operate under the Green Deal.
  5. 5. New tenants need to be aware of the green Deal and acknowledge the repayments they need to make When renting out a property with a Green Deal you need to provide the tenant with a copy of the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) (or, in Scotland, the EPC and the Recommendations Report) showing:

    •The improvements that have been made under the Green Deal

    •The repayment amounts the electricity bill payer needs to make.

    •The name of the Green Deal Provider. You will need to make sure that tenant acknowledges the Green Deal and the repayments by including standard prescribed wording.

    •The length of the Green Deal
