Landlord’s First Letter to Superior Landlord Regarding Energy Efficiency Improvements
This Landlord’s First Letter to Superior Landlord Regarding Energy Efficiency Improvements is a template letter for a residential landlord to use. It should be sent to the landlord’s own landlord (the “superior” landlord or “head” landlord) where the landlord’s tenant wishes to make energy efficiency improvements to the rented property and the superior landlord’s consent is required.
This letter has been drafted to meet the requirements of Part 2 of The Energy Efficiency (Private Rented Property) (England and Wales) Regulations 2015, effective from 1 April 2016. This legislation allows residential tenants to request their landlord’s consent to make energy efficiency improvements. Landlords must not unreasonably refuse consent if the tenant’s request complies with the Regulations.
If there is a superior landlord, the landlord must inform the superior landlord of any tenant’s request for consent and must provide the superior landlord with copies of the request and the landlord’s response.
This is one of three template letters to assist landlords in their dealings with a superior landlord. It encloses copies of the tenant’s request letter and the landlord’s initial response and, optionally, the landlord’s intended counter proposal. The superior landlord is asked to give consent within a specified timescale.
Please refer to the Guidance Notes in this subfolder for more detailed information about tenants’ energy efficiency improvements.
