Stage 3 - How do I get paid?

Applications for Payment are made online and the Council will pay you by electronic transfer, into the bank account you nominate.

 

Instructions on supplying your bank details will be contained in your Confirmation of Eligibility letter if you are eligible at Stage 1. As an anti-fraud measure, you will need to upload either a recent bank statement or screenshot from online banking showing the account details as a proof. The Council will then arrange to pay you the approved grant amount for the preparation of the engineer's report.

 

Further payments will depend on getting Confirmation of Grant Approval at Stage 2. With your Confirmation of Grant Approval, we will tell you how much of a grant you can receive, when and over how many payments. The last payment will always be a minmum of 25% of the overall grant amount.

 

 

 

 

If you have received Confirmation of Eligibility at Stage 1, you will be able to log into the system to provide details of the bank account you wish to have your first claim payment paid into. This payment will be for 90% of the amount you were approved for in respect of the fees for the engineer’s report at Stage 1.

 

In your letter of Confirmation of Grant Approval, we will tell you what your approved grant amount is, and the number of grant payments allowed as well as when and how to claim them. Please log back in to tell tell us when your works are starting so there are no delays for your payment schedule.
We will let you know when you can apply for your next payment. Please have the information and documents ready, for uploading online. Ask your engineer and contractor to supply them to you electronically (in PDF format). Once you have submitted your application for Grant Payment, it will be assessed. If approved, the Council will arrange payment directly into your nominated bank account as soon as possible and subject to the money being available.

 

No, your letter of Confirmation of Grant Approval will tell you the number of payments allowed and when and how to claim them. We will let you know when you can apply for your next payment.

 

This means the Council cannot pay more than 75% of the approved cost before the final payment claim. The final payment claim can only be made when all works are completed and you have received a Certificate of Remediation from your engineer and contractor.

 

Yes, every application for payment must include a statement of satisfactory completion of works and for a final payment, a Certificate of Remediation is required.
