    Does anyone know if there is a free loft insulation scheme out there ?

    I understand certain benefit type tenants can qualify for free insulation, but i dont think this set up would qualify.

    I am hoping to buy a large old building converted into 8 flats. It is fully set up and rented out, however it has been run by an older lady who is retiring. So certain things haven't been done so well.

    We did a survey today and checked out the huge attic space. It has zero insulation.

    So currently the top 3 flats must have an issue with heat retention. The next 2 floors less so.

    I feel it is important to get this space insulated and probably will end up doing it myself, but if there is some help out there does anyone know where to look ?

    Yep minimum requirement is E rating, and will be D not far away. C by 2030.

    So i will need to get some insulation in as currently an E. But if there was some help out there, it would be welcome.

    The "LAFlex" (Local Authority) route can cover a surprising range of people, in my small experience installing my widget for trialists under ECO3.
