OFTEC is urging Scottish landlords to take advantage of the recently-launched Scottish Landlord Boiler Scrappage Scheme.

The Oil Firing Technical Association (OFTEC) is urging private landlords in Scotland to take advantage of the recently-launched Scottish Landlord Boiler Scrappage Scheme.

Starting in 9 November, eligible landlords can claim £400 off the cost of a new boiler on a first-come-first-serve basis.

The scheme was launched by the Scottish government in an attempt to help reduce CO2 emissions and reduce fuel costs for tenants.

Boilers eligible for the grant have a G-rated efficiency of 70% or less and must be replaced by an efficient new boiler as recommended by the Energy Saving Trust.

OFTEC's director general, Jeremy Hawksley, said: "That there are over 93,000 households in Scotland which use oil heating. This scheme will benefit tenants who use oil boilers by reducing their fuel bills by up to 25%."

Landlords can apply for the Scottish Boiler Scrappage Scheme by calling 0800 512 012.
