I’m a journalist working for the i paper. I’m writing a piece about new energy efficiency rules coming into force from April, which require all rented properties (even those currently let) to be brought up to an EPC (energy performance certificate) standard of at least an E. That means anyone living in a flat with an F or G rating should receive insulation etc,courtesy of the landlord, unless he or she has applied for an exemption. The penalty for non-compliance can amount to £000s.
Looking to speak to tenants who live in an F or G rated property. Has the landlord upgraded it? Or have you heard nothing about the new rules? Happy for interviews to be on the record or off the record (which keeps you anonymous). Please reply to this thread or contact me on madeleine.cuff[@]inews.co.uk.
