Landlords urged to make homes low carbon

Landlords urged to make homes low carbon
Landlords should ensure that the homes they rent out are energy efficient if they want to attract tenants, it has been suggested.

The National Landlords Association says that low carbon properties are much more appealing for those looking for accommodation as they are cheaper to run.

Its comments follow the introduction of new rules in Scotland which state that all landlords must provide their tenants with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

Spokesman for the group Anthony Zahara said: "We've seen that landlords are already investing in energy saving measures prior to the launch of the EPC and this is in response to growing market demand for energy efficient properties.

He added: "With the credit crunch tenants are looking for lower fuel bills and landlords seem to be responding positively to this."

According to the Energy Savings Trust, energy use in UK homes accounts for 27 per cent of the UK's emissions of carbon dioxide.
