Landlords Association raises concerns over incorrect energy efficiency ratings

The Residential Landlords Association is concerned that over 100,000 homes could have been given incorrect energy efficiency after new figures from the Building Research Establishment have shown that Energy Performance Certificates can understate the energy efficiency of homes with solid walls and uninsulated cavity walls.

The RLA is now campaigning for greater accuracy when it comes to allocating the ratings and is in talks with the Government over the issue.

Richard Jones, policy adviser and company secretary said: β€œAt the RLA we have major concerns around the accuracy of EPCs, particularly as these form the basis for the new compulsion requirements imposing a minimum E banding from 2018 onwards, starting with new lets and moving onto existing lets.”
