bored everyone posted on other threads about our annexe conversion and the fact that we don't qualify for an insulation grant but finding out that we also can't claim back the VAT on building costs because a granny annexe is not an independent unit - even though it's a stand alone building and is making use of what was once a commercial property - has left me hopping mad!!
What is the point in retired people like us planning for our future needs, freeing up a three bedroom home for DD1 and her sons and doing our best to remain independent with family support nearby should we need it?
Mean spirited discrimination? I think so.
Letter to MP on its way.
