EV Chargepoint Grant for Landlords

EV chargepoint Grant for landlords

The EV Chargepoint Grant for landlords is a pivotal government-issued initiative aimed at encouraging the widespread adoption of electric vehicles by providing financial incentives and support to property owners and landlords.

But what is the EV chargepoint grant for landlords? 

Find out everything you need to know about the EV chargepoint grant for landlords, including eligibility and grant funding in 2023 in this blog.

What is the EV chargepoint grant for landlords?

As part of the push to ensure sufficient electric vehicle charging infrastructure across the UK, OZEV (Office for Zero Emission Vehicles) introduced the EV chargepoint grant for landlords in 2022. Up to £350 off the installation of one electric car charger per grant is included,  or up to 75% of the total cost.

How much grant funding is available for landlords wanting to invest in EV chargers?

Thousands of pounds worth of funding is available with the EV chargepoint grant for landlords. In fact, a landlord can claim up to 200 grants per financial year at £350 per grant for residential properties, which works out to a substantial £70,000 of government funding.

Alternatively, commercial landlords can claim up to 100 grants a year, which despite being less than the residential, still equates to a maximum of £37,000 worth of funding per year for installing electric car chargers.

The EV charger grants can be used on one single rental property or spread across multiple properties as long as it does not exceed the maximum caps for the year. It can be used for either single-unit residential properties (houses/flats) or multi-unit residential properties such as apartment blocks, as long as the property is not the landlord’s place of residence.

Who is considered a landlord with the landlord EV charger grant?

In this instance, to be able to claim the £350 grants available, a landlord is classed as:

  • Someone who owns or lets a property
  • Management companies (RTM)
  • Companies owning the freehold of a leased or rented property
  • Property factor listed on the property factor register
  • Private social housing providers
  • Public authorities (for example, the NHS and government departments)
  • Charities

Important – if you are not registered with either Companies House or VAT registered with HMRC, you will not be eligible for the grant.

How do I know if I am eligible for the EV chargepoint grant for landlords?

To be eligible for the landlord grant, you must:

  • Be a landlord registered with companies house or are VAT registered.
  • Have private parking and own these dedicated parking spaces. If you rent the parking, you will not be eligible.
  • Have an OZEV-approved installer to complete the installations (We Power Your Car, for example).
  • Have an OZEV-approved electric vehicle charger(s) installed on your property. For residential properties, you must have a charger on the eligible approved residential chargepoint model list. Alternatively, if it’s for commercial use, the authorised model lists.

Important things to note:

  • You do not need to have an eligible vehicle to claim the grant, unlike the EV chargepoint grant for flat owner-occupiers and flat residents’ grant scheme.
  • The landlord grant does NOT cover holiday rentals.
  • If cables or other materials cross over other properties or public property, you must get the relevant permissions.
  • If you are applying for a single-unit residential property, it must not be your permanent place of residence. If it is, you will not be eligible for the grant.
  • If you want the grant for a commercially let property, the electric vehicle charger must only be used by staff, fleets and/or tenants – it can not be used for public use.

This package covers the majority of homes in the UK. Before we undertake your installation we will carry out a digital survey to check that nothing has been missed. After reviewing the survey results some additional work may be required in order to complete your installation safely and to the required standards. If this is the case, we will contact you well before the installation date and advise the cost of any required work. You can then continue with your installation, or alternatively we will refund you in full if you do not want to proceed.

Included in our standard installation is :
• Fitting of a single phase charge point to a brick or plaster wall or other suitable permanent structure
• Up to 10 metres of cable, run and neatly clipped to the wall between the electricity supply meter / distribution board and the charge point.
• Routing of the cable through a drilled hole in a wall up to 500mm (20 inches) thick if this is needed.

• An additional three way consumer unit, if required

• Electrical testing of the whole installation.
• Handover and setup of the charge point and any app that may be needed.

Not included in our standard installation (additional work) :
• Where the installation requires additional cabling over and above the amount you have told us about.
• Upgrade/replacement of the main incoming supply fuse where the local DNO (eg Northern Powergrid) would need to attend site.

• Installation of a charge point to a three phase supply.
• Where gas and water mains bonding (earthing) is not in place at your property. If this is not in place, additional work would be required before installation of the charge point.

• On the day of installation, please ensure that the area around your consumer unit (fuse box), incoming electricity supply meter and proposed charge point location (including where the cable is expected to be run) is clear and free of obstructions.
• We will need your WiFi password as part of the installation process in order to connect your charge point to the internet. Please have this available for the installer. Details will not be kept.
• The charge point must be on your own designated off road parking.
• The charger will be fixed in line with current guidelines at a height where it cannot be hit by a vehicle.
• Our installers are not able to enter loft spaces; lift floorboards or flooring; take apart any furniture of work above a height of 2m. If you anticipate that any of this may be required, then please contact us and we can discuss in more detail and provide you with a quotation.
• Should there be extreme weather conditions our installers may not be able to continue with you installation if it is not safe to do so (for example flooding). They will always do their best to complete the work where they can.
