Hi, I just had my two flats out of date EPC assessments done and one failed. The grade was G the lowest on the scale. I have been informed by the assessor that I cannot rent the flat with this low grade, and recommended I change the electric boiler to gas.
We don’t have gas piped to the flats and the gas company said if they could supply the gas pipe it would take over three months and could cost around £1000. The second recommendation was to insulate all inside walls with 50m insulation, I have already installed 25m but this would not count because he can only assess what he can see. The cost of the installation is between £5000 and £8000.
I asked if I can do the insulation myself and save some money the answer was no i have to get a company who can supply a certificate. I can’t get any grants for the work because the tenant has to be on benefits and I don’t have a tenant. I agree this flat requires upgrading, and I’m prepared to do that but the cost for a new boiler and insulation would be £12.000. This would mean no rent for the next two years.
The problem I have can’t let it, can’t sell it, can’t pay for the work. Help!
