Financial assistance for homes

How much financial assistance can I receive?

Financial assistance up to a maximum of £30,000 is available. All works are subject to a full building survey, a Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) inspection and eligible criteria.

Financial assistance is interest free, with no hidden charges or monthly repayments.

On completion of the approved work, the council will pay the costs directly to the contractor and register the loan with the Land Registry as a charge against your property, which is not repayable until you sell your home.

Please note that financial assistance cannot be paid retrospectively for work carried out prior to the inspection and application process.
