Vacant Property Refurbishment Grant

We are getting a lot of enquires about the grant scheme announced by the Government in relation to Vacant Property Refurbishment. You can get a grant of up to €50,000 to renovate a vacant property and up to €70,000, if the property is derelict. The grant is inclusive of the VAT cost of the works.

To qualify for the Vacant Property Refurbishment Grant, you must meet the following criteria:

  • The property must have been vacant for 2 years or more.

  • The property must have been built before 2008. (Before 1 May 2023, only homes built before 1993 qualified.)

  • You must own the property, or be in the process of buying it.

  • You must live in the property as your principal private residence when the work is completed, or make it available for rent.

  • You must have tax clearance from Revenue and your tax affairs must be in order.

  • You must have paid your Local Property Tax, if applicable.

  • You must not have already got funding under the grant.
