30 day and prepayment rule

Post by David » Wed Jun 22, 2011 3:40 pm

On the 10th June Carrillion issued this notice;
Important Information Regarding Customer Contribution Payments
Please note that with immediate effect all Warm Front installations that incur a customer contribution must be paid in full before any work commences and this includes any customer contribution being funded by a loan/grant from a local authority. Further to the recent update that was circulated I would like to remind you that since the Scheme opened for new applications in April all quotations for heating work are valid for 30 days only.
This change in adminstration makes the grant next to useless for the most vulnerable households, on income related benefits, who do not have the cash available. Most LA don't have funds to assist and even if they did this is a significant barrier. Many LA in the NW are deeply concerned by this and I was wondering whether others are planning to contact DECC or if they had any further information on this policy?
