Providing a good standard of energy efficient accomodation is becoming increasingly important with the introduction of the Govenment's new Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards in 2018.
These regulations will require a minimum energy performance rating of E on an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). The rules come into force for new lets and tenancy renewals on 1st April 2018 and for all existing tenancies on 1st April 2020.
Private landlords can take advantage of remaining Government funding available through the Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) to improve their properties, but Green Deal funding is no longer available.
Landlords wishing to make improvements to multiple properties should contact the team at email@example.com to discuss potential projects and possible funding options.
