Warmer rented homes

View all posts

Pressure from Friends of the Earth and supporting groups has created an announcement from Chris Huhne, the Energy Minister, to state that a new law will be introduced to ensure that landlords make the worst of their properties more energy efficient.

“From 2018, the rental of the very worst performing properties – those rated F and G – will be banned through a minimum energy efficiency standard” Chris Huhne.

This will not take effect immediately, but will hopefully encourage people to take stock of their properties early on to reach compliance for the new legislation to come into force in 2018. If you own property that is either a family home or on the rental market and would like to improve the energy efficiency, contact us to discuss the various options to upgrade and in turn reduce the energy and cost of heating the property.
