The Equity Loan Scheme which was launched on 6th January which aims to improve the energy efficiency of existing homes. The HEEPS: Equity Loan Scheme is a Scottish Government loan to help owner occupiers and private landlords improve the energy efficiency of their homes and carry out repairs to the fabric of the building. Although the loan is secured against the property, there are no ongoing repayments and the loan will generally only be repaid when the property is sold or upon the death of the last applicant.
Energy Saving Trust are partnering with Glasgow Care and Repair to deliver the scheme. Care and Repair offers independent advice and assistance to help elderly and disabled homeowners repair, improve or adapt their homes so that they can live in comfort and safety in their own community. The Equity Loan Scheme will liaise with all applicants and clients can access their network of approved contractors, and will provide an enhanced level of support to elderly and vulnerable customers.
