There is still no clarity from the government about the proposed ‘upgrade’ to C rating for all PRS lets as yet…but…
Are Grade 2 listed properties completely exempt from having to go through the ‘wrap first’ initiatives? My Local Authority does not have a conservation officer/Dept just to simply double-check, so any request for advice has to be paid for first and forwarded to Planning. No one else has clearly asked, as a quick call to Planning confirmed this, so do I bother now or later?
If the cap is raised for Landlords to put towards initiatives (talk of up to £10k instead of current £3.5k), do I assume this means that any costs involved in trying to determine even the if possible exemption, can come under this category?
I am wondering if I can also claim costs if I get an expert out to assess that (as external insulation not viable because of listing) that equally internal insulation is not viable (how is house supposed to breathe?) so these can be taken into account?
I am struggling to see how on earth it is going to be possible to make my properties a C when both are buildings are listed, in addition to being in a conservation area, terraced with no external/outside space, restrictions on any window changes from sash’s and three stories high. No chance of solar panels, wind turbines or ground source heat pumps. They don’t have gas supplies either.
Are there any details on exemptions anywhere???
