Housing advice for Northern Ireland

Repairs grant

There aren't as many grants available now to help with poor housing as there were 10 years ago.  However, you can still get some help if you need to adapt your home because you have a disability, if you are a landlord and you have been issued with a statutory notice by the council, if you are a homeowner living in a flooding zone, if you want to improve the energy efficiency of your home or if your home is in such a serious state of disrepair that it could cause death or serious injury. 

If you're planning on making certain improvements to your property, you may qualify for financial assistance. You'll also be entitled to certain tax allowances.

A repairs grant is available to help cover the cost of carrying out repairs required after your local council has issued a Notice of Disrepair on a protected tenancy or a Public Health Notice on any other property. You can get up to £7,500 depending on the type of work needed.

Many builders provide structural guarantees for the first ten years after you buy your home. If any structural problems develop within that time, you won't have to pay for the repairs.

You may be eligible for a grant for certain types of repairs. There are schemes available which will provide some assistance if you wish to make your home more energy efficient. If the council has issued a Statutory Notice against your property, you may be able to get a Repairs Grant from the Housing Executive.
