Preventing new entrants in BTL
One in 10 buy-to-let homes will be unlettable in five years' time unless landlords take steps to improve their properties' energy efficiency. New laws that take effect in 2018 will make it an offence to let out properties with the worst energy efficiency ratings. Such properties are much more common in the private rented sector than among owner-occupied homes or those rented out by councils or housing associations. Tenants will also be able to demand improvements to insulation from 2016, when landlords will not be able to refuse tenants' "reasonable" requests for energy efficiency measures.
