Trade group welcomes cut to cost of lettings energy measures

The Residential Landlords Association says it welcomes the government’s decision to reduce the likely maximum payment by landlords for energy improvements from £5,000 to £2,500 per property.

As part of the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards being introduced from next April - with the first part requiring homes to be brought up to a minimum E EPC rating - the original maximum of £5,000 to be paid by a landlord has now been halved.

This requirement comes into force for new lets and tenancy renewals from April 2018 and for all residential lets from April 2020.

A new consultation on the proposal closes on March 13.
