Councils using ‘Intelligence’ to track down low EPC properties and fine £5,00015:08 PM, 29th March 2021

We have a couple of ground floor flats, a one bed and two bed which up to now have been let to fully able-bodied tenants who have no special mobility requirements.
Both tenancies will be ending shortly and I am acutely aware that these are sought after properties as a direct result of being directly accessible from the street and are considering adapting them for disabled tenants.
From the research so far, it seems like any grants that a landlord can apply for seem to be only applicable AFTER a tenant has moved in. I was planning to make the flats as adaptable as possible before as there may well be some significant/disruptive works that may need doing.
Has anyone done this before? I’d welcome any advice or pointers please.
