Landlords Energy Saving Allowance

edkavedkav Feels At HomeRegistered Posts: 37
My client rents out a property, which the windows are all rotting and need replacing. He intends to double glaze all windows. I have looked up the Energy saving allowance and it seem to only cover loft and wall insulation. Is this correct? And is there any way he can claim for double glazing as expediture, or would it be still capital expenditure?

I think that it is Capital, but he just wanted to double check I hadn't missed anything!!

    Look at the second last paragraph before the further guidance at the end of this notice:

    Brilliant...Thank you for that. I was obviously looking in the wrong place for the information!
