Private Landlords & Estate Agents
From April 2018, it is illegal to sell or rent out a property with energy rating lower than E. So it's right time that you think about installing energy saving solutions to increase the energy rating of your properties.
By installing energy efficiency measures, landlords can improve the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating and desirability of their housing stock for future residents whilst ensuring that tenants are warm, comfortable and paying less for their energy. Improving the energy efficiency of housing and building stock is increasingly becoming a legal requirement on both public and private sector landlords under legislation such as the Energy Act 2011 and the Home Energy Conservation Act 2013.
Making energy efficient changes to your property portfolio could help to:
• Increase the value of your property
• Increase the EPC ratings, which could make properties easier to let
• Result in saving in energy bills for tenants and creating a warmer, healthier and comfortable home environment
• Result in lower turnover of tenancies
• Result in landlords meeting energy efficiency standards set for the landlord accreditation scheme
• Reduce incidences of condensation and dampness
• Reduce carbon dioxide emissions from properties.
