Stage 2 - What grant amount is available?

 

Where remedial works are deemed necessary, the local authority may approve a grant up to 90% of the approved cost or the actual cost, whichever is the lesser, subject to maximum limits.

The maximum approved cost is dependent on the remedial option, as recommended in your engineer's report, as per the table below:

Option 1 Demolish entire dwelling to foundation level and rebuild. €275,000 €247,500

No, in many cases the approved grant amount will be less than the maximum limit depending on the size of the dwelling and the kind of works needed. Seeking quotations will help you get the best value for money for the works you need done.

 

Your engineer is there to help you. He/she will prepare a Remedial Works Plan. This plan will show what work is required in detail. Use it to get quotations from contractors and an idea of what the costs will be.

 

Please make sure that your application for Grant Approval covers all the work required for the recommended remedial option for your dwelling. When Grant Approval is given, your letter will say what the approved cost amount is. This amount is final and not subject to increase. Any additional costs will be your responsibility.
