A NEW government scheme, which could have far-reaching and costly implications for landlords, will be under the spotlight at an event being organised by Country Land and Business Association North next month.
The Green Deal – a new scheme to encourage energy-saving changes to domestic and non-domestic buildings at no upfront cost to the consumer – will be examined as part of the Housing Update event on Monday November 19 at Newton and Bywell Community Hall, near Stocksfield, Northumberland.
Under the Green Deal, tenants may soon be able to force landlords to permit works to be carried out. From 2018, it could also become illegal to let any building with the ‘worst’ Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) ratings of F and G.
On hand to provide all the latest information will be the CLA’s housing advisor Danielle Troop.
