If your tenants are on a middle to low-income, and your property is rated EPC D or below, you may be eligible for funding through the LAD3 scheme to cover two-thirds of your retrofit costs.
We can assist you and your tenants to apply for this grant funding and have your property retrofitted by vetted and qualified contractors.
Upgrade your property
We are working with Lewisham and Greenwich Councils to support landlords across the boroughs to improve their energy efficiency.
You might be able to access 2/3rds match funding through the LAD3 grant funding scheme. Speak to our team to see if your tenants are eligible, and if not, what other help you could get.
How it works:
Book a call with Hojee, our landlord's advisor. He'll explain the funding and what improvements you could make.
Refer your tenants to us. Our energy advice team will speak to your tenants and collect their details to apply for funding.
We make the funding application on your behalf.
If your application is accepted, we'll complete a property survey.
You'll receive quotes for the work from qualified contractors.
The works go ahead. Your property is made more comfortable and your EPC score is improved.

Thermal Imaging Survey
Thermal imaging Surveys provide you with a detailed report containing images and notes on where your property is losing heat. Several recommendations will be made for targeted improvements.
Please note: Thermal imaging surveys can only be conducted when outdoor temperatures are low in order to see clearly where your home is losing heat (during the summer this service is not available).

Book in for an updated EPC to prove compliance with MEES, or to evidence home improvements for demonstrated compliance with future MEES increases.
Recommendations for improvements can be found on the EPC, you can view an example EPC here for an idea of what is covered.
