You could lose your home if you don’t keep up your mortgage repayments
Green Homes Grant scheme (England)
In July 2020 the Government announced a new Green Homes Grant scheme.
Vouchers worth up to £10,000 will be given to homeowners in England to make their homes more energy efficient. This scheme is due to launch at the end of September 2020 and be available until March 2021.
For most home owners the vouchers can cover two-thirds of the cost of energy efficiency improvements up to a maximum of £5,000 per household. For those on low incomes the government will cover the full cost of energy efficiency improvements up to a maximum of £10,000 per household.
To be able to receive the vouchers you will need to complete one of the following improvements:
- Insulation: Solid wall, cavity wall, under-floor, loft, flat roof, room in roof, park home
- Top ups are allowed e.g. additional loft insulation up to the recommended level but replacement not included.
- Low carbon heat: Air source heat pump, ground source heat pump, solar thermal systems
If you are completing one or more of the above improvements, you can also use your vouchers for:
- Draught proofing
- Double or triple glazing / secondary glazing when replacing single glazing
- Energy efficient doors
- Hot water tank or appliance tank / thermostats or heating controls
It’s important to note that for these improvements you can only claim up to the same value as used for insulation or low carbon heat measures.
You will need to apply for the voucher online and use a local accredited Trust Mark supplier to carry out the works.

Help to Buy: equity loan scheme - Buying a new build with a 5% deposit
Lloyds Bank is supporting the Government’s Help to Buy: equity loan scheme.

In England and Wales the Government lends up to 40% of the value of the property in Greater London, or up to 20% of the value of the property outside of Greater London. In Scotland the Government lends up to 15% of the value of the property.
