Are you worried your home isn’t energy efficient? Well, the government is currently contemplating plans to make sure landlords are renting out energy efficient homes.
The government is looking to penalise landlords for renting out homes that are not up to an environmental standard, as part of the ‘Green Deal‘.
So basically, you could get fined if you ignore a request to make a home greener, or if you rent out your home with a poor level of insulation.
To me this seems a good idea, homes need to be more energy efficient to save us money and reduce our carbon footprint, but is this going to cause unnecessary installation costs to be passed to the tenants?
It will be interesting to see if the government goes through with this?
