DECC has not estimated the cost of completing credit checks for Green Deal customers as this is a commercial consideration for Green Deal providers who are offering finance. Lenders, including Green Deal providers, must lend responsibly and are required by law to check people will be able to make the repayments. It is for them to decide how best to meet this requirement and how any costs are managed.
