I wonder how you and others feel about my quandry regarding the gas installation at my rental property.
I have an end of terrace, 1920s built house which I rent out through my local council.
The heating and hot water are supplied via a back boiler with gas fire in front and a hot water cylinder. During a recent inspection the fire failed and was disconnected. The back boiler is still supplying hot water and heating but is past its best days.
I am considering my options which appear to be:
Replacing the fire only is not an option as it is not now possible to match one to the back boiler.
I have considered applying for a NEST grant but the tenant has to apply not the landlord. This is problematic as the tenants change regularly as they are installed by the local council who rent the house from me.
What do you suggest?
Do you have any knowledge of the NEST grant facility?
