Landlord’s Full Response Letter Regarding Energy Efficiency Improvements
This Landlord’s Full Response Letter regarding energy efficiency improvements can be sent to a tenant who has requested consent to make energy efficiency improvements to a rented property.
This letter complies with Part 2 of The Energy Efficiency (Private Rented Property) (England and Wales) Regulations 2015, which came into force on 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.
The landlord may have needed to send an initial response letter in the first instance. An initial response is required if there is a superior landlord whose consent is also required, if the landlord intends to serve a counter proposal, or if the landlord wishes to obtain evidence or advice before deciding whether to consent to the energy efficiency improvements. See our Initial Response template.
In many cases an initial response will not be required and the landlord will simply need to use this Full Response Letter. The letter states whether consent is given to each of the proposed improvements and gives reasons for any refusal of consent. The letter makes optional reference to a counter proposal which may be enclosed.
Please refer to the Guidance Notes in this subfolder for more detailed information about tenants’ energy efficiency improvements.
