    I have a 1910 end of terrace which has a C rating. As well as the above the existing internal plaster was removed and replaced with thermal board. The house was empty for over a year and the costs could not be justified on an investment basis alone.

    The house looked almost exactly the same when it was finished, but now I have no complaints from the tenants and it re-lets pretty quickly.

      Unless you're planning to move into it at some point, what other basis is there for a BTL property?

        I've never had any complaints from my tenants. I've just improved the property when I'd saved enough to do it.

        According to the EPC, I'd need to spend between £14,000 to £29,000, to save the tenant £600 a year.

          I spent the higher amount on my property. As it had an attic room I had to insulate the roof itself to make it liveable and I upgraded everything else at the same time. The OP can solve his problem by laying down rolls of insulation in the roof space.

            Feeling cold? Wear more clothes. You can get thermal undies in Asda. Job done!

              Why bother with that when you can just turn the thermostat up & let the landlord pay the bills?
