Landlords

Help to improve the energy efficiency of your properties

As a landlord it is your responsibility to ensure that your rented properties are in good condition. There are currently no energy efficiency regulations for the rental sector, however by 2016 you will not be able to refuse any reasonable request from a tenant to improve the efficiency of the property they rent.  

In addition, by 2018 all the properties you let must be an EPC band E or above unless you can prove you have done all you can through available energy efficiency schemes, to improve the rating of the property.

Solent Green Deal has written a guide to explain how you can make your properties more attractive to tenants, better maintained, and compliant with legislation changes; with little or no cost to you.

If you decide to take up the opportunities provided by the government incentives, Solent Green Deal can manage the whole process for you.
