TDS Produces an Energy Efficiency Guide for Rented Properties

The Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS), in collaboration with the National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA), has produced a guide to improving energy efficiency in rented properties.

Although many landlords have already made energy efficiency upgrades to help reduce energy costs, and have passed on the 2022 energy discount for tenants paying all-inclusive bills, what else can be done to help?

Steve Harriott, Group Chief Executive Officer at TDS comments:

“Across the UK, energy bills are at an all-time high following the latest energy price-cap rise. Within the Private rented sector (PRS), we’re finding that landlords are increasingly concerned about how to keep energy costs down and support their tenants, while having further concerns about improving their Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), as a result of proposed changes coming to the minimum EPC rating.”

The Energy efficiency guide features low-cost tips to improve your property’s EPC and offers long-term ideas to make your home’s carbon footprint future-proof.

The guide also features an extensive list of government grants that landlords and their tenants may be able to apply for, and lists some easy, quick energy efficiency ideas that tenants can implement today.

Steve concludes: “By improving the property’s EPC rating, landlords can help decrease their tenant’s energy bills and ensure their property is up to standard for 2025’s proposed adjustments.”
