Green Deal and what it means for landlords
Well first lets first start saying the green deal will create lots of jobs…Hip Hip Hooray…
What the green deal means for landlords, quoted by the guardian!!,” Landlords will also be able to take advantage of the scheme, facing no upfront costs when improving their properties. The forthcoming Energy Bill will also enable tenants to get reasonable energy efficiency improvements from 2015 onwards if they request them. It will also give local authorities powers to insist that landlords improve the worst performing homes”
Homes and businesses that use the Green Deal will follow a three-step process that will begin with an independent energy survey of a property, giving clear advice on the best energy efficiency options. Homes and businesses will then be able to access Green Deal finance, through a range of accredited providers. The third step will see homes and businesses receive their energy efficiency package delivered by appropriately qualified installers, through accredited schemes overseen by Government.
