Today, The Lettings Industry Council (TLIC) has published an open letter to the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG).
The letter which is supported by 17 letting agents across the UK, offers an alternative proposal for the improvement of energy efficiency in privately rented homes. The proposal allows more time for landlords to recover from the financial effects of Covid-19 before investing more money into their rental property on energy efficiency works.
We believe our proposal will reduce the pressure on stock available in the PRS market whilst still achieving the overarching goal of all properties in the PRS (unless exempt) achieving an Energy Performance Certificate rating of a C by 2030.
