PRIVATE RENTED SECTOR TENANT’S ENERGY EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENTS PROVISIONS

The Department of Energy and Climate Change has issued guidance for landlords and tenants of domestic property on Part Two of the Energy Efficiency (Private Rented Property)(England and Wales) Regulations 2015.

The document below provides guidance for domestic tenants, landlords and others with an interest in the domestic private rented sector on the effect of Part Two of The Energy Efficiency (Private Rented Property) (England and Wales) Regulations 2015, the tenants’ energy efficiency improvements provisions for domestic tenants. It outlines, for tenants and landlords, their rights and responsibilities under the provisions. Separate guidance will be published in due course covering Part Three of the Regulations (the Minimum level of Energy Efficiency Provisions), including separate guidance for landlords in the domestic and non- domestic sectors.

The Regulations fulfil a duty on the Secretary of State in the Energy Act 2011 to introduce regulations to improve the energy efficiency of buildings in the domestic and non-domestic private rented sector in England and Wales.

The Regulations and related order were approved by Parliament and made on 26 March 2015.

Where a domestic property is tenanted, consent will normally be required from the landlord of the property before work to improve the property’s energy efficiency can be carried out. The Regulations provide a stand-alone statutory scheme in order to obtain any required consent in the case of a domestic private rented sector property. Chapter 2 looks at relevant issues under landlord and tenant law as this affects the carrying out of energy efficiency improvements to private rented residential properties.
