Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?9:44 AM, 17th February 2021
About A week ago 125
I had a company carry out checks on all my properties (Birmingham & Devon) in Summer 2020 to determine what grants I could apply for.
Advice was given that I could apply for some ECO3 funding. All the properties house benefit/low income tenants.
Some properties have enough roof insulation, but due to the nature of the buildings cannot have cavity wall insulation as there are no cavities to fill. The idea of external wall insulation was discussed and the company put in the request. The last message I had back was that fitting it was on hold till the weather picks up as a consistent temperature is needed on the outside of the walls for external insulation to be fitted correctly. (I don’t know the details of the possible fitters)
IF this external insulation gets done, can I still apply for a Green Homes Grant? As this work is one of the primary measures, can I then apply for some secondary measures under the GHG or do ALL measures (primary and any secondary) have to be completed under the GHG in totality?
If that is the case, would it be best to halt all plans now under ECO3 and go through the faff of starting afresh and apply for all properties to be assessed under the GHG? I am finding this whole grant thing totally confusing. All I need is a clear plan of what I need to do! Help!
