If you want to make your home more energy efficient, you can get cashback
The Green Deal cashback scheme can give you money off insulation, double glazing or a new boiler
If you want to make your home more energy efficient, you could qualify for a government cashback. The Green Deal cashback (or Green Homes cashback, if you live in Scotland) offers cashback on the costs of getting insulation, a new condensing boiler, double glazing or draught proofing, with up to around £1,000 on offer, depending on what you decide to buy. How does it work and who qualifies for it?
If you’re looking for a mortgage broker, how do you pick a good one?
If you take out a mortgage, you can find one directly, talk to your bank or building society or get advice from a mortgage broker. When I remortgage, I tend to use a mortgage broker because I think a good one can get you a better mortgage deal (or the right one for you) and can sometimes save you money on things like life insurance. If you’re self employed or if you’re not a good credit risk, it’s definitely worth using a mortgage broker.
You can make energy-saving improvements to your home without having to pay all the costs upfront through the Green Deal
The government says it wants to make it easier for people to improve the energy efficiency of their homes. The much hyped Green Deal is a way to get energy efficient measures installed and to pay for them through the savings that you’re expected to make on your energy bills. The government has made improvements to the Green Deal, which are available from June 15th.
