Minimum energy standard to benefit council households

Last summer the government announced changes to the Energy Bill to include a new law introducing a legal minimum energy efficiency standard for homes rented from a landlord from 2018. They have also announced the introduction of measures, from 2016, to allow councils and tenants to demand energy efficiency measures from landlords.

Residents of older council housing have suffered greatly as newer legislation often was not applicable to older properties but the new measures will give council tenants the power to demand higher efficiency in their properties.
