A council says it's identified hundreds of rental properties within its boundaries which apparently do not comply with key energy efficiency regulations.
East Lindsey council says the properties are not up to standards required through the Energy Efficiency (Private Rented Property) (England and Wales) Regulations 2015.
The authority has issued 96 Compliance Notices between April 1 and October 29 2020, and has improved 108 properties in this same timescale.
It issued a further 46 compliance Notices between April 1 2018 - when the regulations came into force for new tenancies - and April 1 this year, when the regulations were extended to all tenancies.
It has improved a further 33 properties between April 2018 and April 2020.
* This totals 142 Compliance Notices served and 141 improved properties between April 2018 and late October 2020 - not the 400 notices as an earlier story indicated, based on a press release from the authority.
