Improving the Energy Efficiency of Rented Homes

The government have launched a new consultation on proposals to upgrade as many private rented sector homes as possible to Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) Band C by 2030, where practical, cost-effective and affordable.

They propose to :

  • Raise the minimum EPC rating to Band C in a phased approach from 2025 to 2028
  • Increase the maximum investment amount with a £10,000 cap with any spend from 2023 onwards counting towards the total.

The consultation closes on 30th December 2020 and Landlords are encouraged to respond on-line. Find out more….
