NLA urges landlords to acknowledge the Green Deal
Landlords across the UK are being urged to familiarise themselves with the Green Deal which has recently been launched.
The National Landlords Association (NLA) stated that those leasing properties need to be looking to make improvements to their portfolio of houses to ensure that they are increasingly energy-efficient.
Officials have stated that this government initiative is designed to make the UK’s housing sector more conscious about the amount energy that is omitted through properties.
It will also mean that landlords who have a house which has an Energy Performance Rating of F or G rated will be forbidden to let that property after 2018.
David Salusbury, chairman of the NLA, commented: “The government has made it clear that there will be consequences for those who do not voluntarily improve the energy efficiency of their properties by a specific time, so there is no excuse not to comply with the cost-neutral scheme.”
The news adds even more prominence at a time when landlords are actively looking to expand their current portfolios.
