The campaign will include practical help and support for landlords with non-compliant properties, including a free energy survey, if booked before the end of March.
The surveys, undertaken by Severn Wye Energy Agency on behalf of the District Council, will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served basis’ and will include a report, giving tailored recommendations and costings on how to bring the property up to the legal requirements.
Under the current rules, landlords are not obligated to spend more than £3,500 on retro-fitting energy performance improvements, even if their property then fails to make the grade. Modifications that cost more than the cap, may, in some cases, attract grant-funding.
Further help and support is available on Cotswold District Council’s website
