EV chargepoint grant for landlords
The EV chargepoint grant for landlords is open to the following:
landlords of a property that lets the property
right to manage (RTM) companies
companies owning the freehold of a leased or rented property
companies owning a building’s common areas. The company may comprise shareholders who are the leaseholders. The company may also manage the building
property factors listed on the property factor register
private registered providers of social housing (PRP)
public authorities, such as government departments and their agencies, the armed forces, local governments, the NHS and emergency services
The grant amount given is per chargepoint socket installed. It provides up to 75% of the cost towards the purchase and installation of a chargepoint socket, limited to £350 per grant.
Landlords can receive up to 200 grants a year for residential properties, and a further 100 for commercial properties.
Applicant must be businesses registered at Companies House. If not, they must be VAT registered with Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC). If there are not registered at either, they will not be eligible for the grant.
In considering eligibility, OZEV will use the public authorities referenced in the Local Government Act 2003, Section 33 and the Freedom of Information Act, Schedule 1, parts 1-3.
At a later date, we will provide for PRPs, charities and property factors that do not have a Companies House or VAT registration.
The property where chargepoints are installed must be located in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland.
The grant can be used for:
single-unit residential properties, such as flats and houses
multi-unit residential properties, such as apartment blocks
commercially let properties that have parking dedicated for staff use or fleet use of the tenant or prospective tenant
A single unit residential property cannot be the place of residence of the applicant.
For commercially let property, the chargepoint must be dedicated for the use by the staff or fleets of the property’s tenant. It cannot be for public use.
Holiday rental properties are not covered by this grant.
Where an installation requires cabling or other parts of the installation to be placed in or on another person’s property, or public land, access rights and permissions must be agreed by all parties using legally binding arrangements, such as legal covenants, before an installation begins.
The space where the chargepoint(s) is installed must be a private parking space. The applicant must own the parking space or have the sole legal right to it.
The parking must be suitable for a chargepoint installation and be able to permit an eligible vehicle to be charged safely. It must be possible to access the parking space at all times.
Where multiple chargepoints are installed at a property, each socket installed should be able to charge at least one unique and clearly defined parking bay or space.
