The consultation proposes a cap on costs to landlords to improve the energy efficiency of each of their properties of £2,500. However, prior to the release of this consultation, it had been anticipated that a cost cap of £5,000 might be introduced, in line with the recommendations of the Committee on Fuel Poverty's 2017 annual report (see https://www.gov.uk/government/publicati ... tober-2017).
The End Fuel Poverty Coalition has pointed out that, using the government's own figures from the draft impact assessment, published alongside the consultation, a spend of £2,500 would enable only 30% of F and G-rated properties in the private rented sector to be improved to band E.
The deadline for responses to the consultation is 13 March 2018.
