Private Landlords government legislation now means you have more energy saving responsibilities

In addition to keeping your property in good order you now have to meet minimum energy ratings for your property

Thankfully this can be helped by updating that old unreliable gas boiler to a modern high efficiency condensing boiler

By meeting the new legislation, you will have a happy tenant who will be grateful that they wont have such a large bill at the end of the quarter and will not keep complaining about the boiler breaking down all the time.

Renters and landlords to enjoy warmer properties and cheaper bills

Department of Energy & Climate Change, The Rt Hon Edward Davey and The Rt Hon Amber Rudd MP

Extract:

Up to 1 million tenants renting from a private landlord can look forward to warmer homes that cost less to heat, under new government plans.

This is welcome news for tenants, especially low-income and vulnerable households, many of whom are paying over the odds to heat their homes.

From April 2018, landlords will be required by law to get their leakiest properties to an energy efficiency rating of at least Band "E". Estimates suggest that on average the difference in a heating bill from the least energy efficient properties and those with an energy rating Band "E" is £880.

Fuel poor households living in the least efficient privately-rented homes already need to spend on average around £1,000 more to keep warm compared to the average home.

Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change Edward Davey said:

"These new laws will plug the gaps in draughty homes - helping households to keep warm and drive down bills."

Response by:

Richard Lambert, CEO of the National Landlords Association said:

"The Government has struck a delicate balance between making clear what is expected and ensuring that there is a realistic prospect of landlords being able to comply.

Setting the standard at a sensible rather than aspirational level, allowing time to achieve it and granting exemptions if the necessary improvements cannot be funded through the Green Deal or other government subsidies means that these new regulations will not impose an unreasonable burden. Indeed, where a landlord is in a position to undertake improvements, there will be no good reason not to.

The NLA actively encourages landlords to improve the energy efficiency of their properties because it's good business practice: a warm tenant is a happy tenant."
