Landlords! Are you clued up on energy rating improvements?

Did you know that as of 2018 if your property’s Energy Rating is an F or G you wouldn’t be able to continue renting out the property without carrying out costly energy saving improvements? Schemes have been made available by the Government to ensure these home improvements are as cost effective as possible. Hunters has met with providers who have funding in the following schemes;

The Green Deal is a government initiative to improve energy efficiency in UK households offering energy-saving home improvements such as loft, cavity or solid wall insulation, double glazing, a new boiler or even a 'micro-generation' system such as solar panels. The cost of the improvements are then attached to the property and repaid through the utility bill.

Eco - Energy Company Obligation is for the big six energy suppliers which works alongside the Green Deal to offer affordable warmth and provide heating and insulation improvements for low-income and vulnerable households.

If you would like us to check the Energy Rating of your rental property or give you more information on the schemes available then please contact the Maintenance Department on 01904 756150 or email 

Please note that if you do proceed with any energy saving improvements to your property a new Energy Performance Certificate will be required.
