Guidance on Residential Tenants’ Rights to Make Energy Efficiency Improvements

Guidance Notes on Tenants’ Energy Efficiency Improvements

PROP.RES.111

These Guidance Notes on Tenants’ Energy Efficiency Improvements are designed to help landlords navigate their way through Part 2 of The Energy Efficiency (Private Rented Property) (England and Wales) Regulations 2015, effective from 1 April 2016.

Part 2 of the 2015 Regulations allows residential tenants to request their landlord’s consent to make energy efficiency improvements to the rented property. Landlords must not unreasonably refuse consent if the tenant’s request complies with the Regulations.

Tenants must demonstrate that the improvements will be made at no cost to the landlord. They may be financed by green deal funding, provided free of charge by an energy company, funded by a grant or paid for by the tenant (or a combination of the above).
