Warm tenants are happy tenants says NLA
Article Posted - 5th February 2015
Commenting on the Department of Energy and Climate Change's announcement on the results of the consultation on minimum energy efficiency standards in the private rented sector, Richard Lambert, Chief Executive Officer at the National Landlords Association (NLA), said:
"The Government has struck a delicate balance between making clear what is expected and ensuring that there is a realistic prospect of landlords being able to comply.
“Setting the standard at a sensible rather than aspirational level, allowing time to achieve it and granting exemptions if the necessary improvements cannot be funded through the Green Deal or other government subsidies means that these new regulations will not impose an unreasonable burden. Indeed, where a landlord is in a position to undertake improvements, there will be no good reason not to.
“The NLA actively encourages landlords to improve the energy efficiency of their properties because it's good business practice: a warm tenant is a happy tenant."
