Owners of rental homes given advice
 

Those with rental homes will be interested to hear that the government could implement regulations that make sure that minimum energy-efficiency standards are met in landlords' properties.

Energy and climate change secretary Chris Huhne made the announcement this week (May 10th), at second reading of the Energy Bill.

"Our proposals provide a voice for tenants living in poorly insulated, draughty homes. The Green Deal is a win-win opportunity for landlords by removing the upfront cost of work to upgrade the property making it cheaper to run, more environmentally friendly and ultimately more attractive to rent," he said.

The plans outline that landlords with properties to rent will have to act on requests from tenants, or local authorities representing them, to improve their homes from April 2016.

In addition, it will be unlawful to install a tenant in a home that does not have an E or above energy efficiency rating from April 2018.

The Green Party also warned that there could be more fuel poverty in the future as a result of rising fuel prices and increasing unemployment.
