A fifth of tenants consider cost-effective central heating to be a must, according to a new study.
As the winter weather worsens, it is not only home owners who are concerned about the increasing costs of keeping warm.
Double glazing is seen as the top priority for the next rental home for 80% of tenants, research by PropertyLetByUs.com revealed.
An approximate 10 million British families live in a home with a leaking roof, damp walls or rotting windows, with damp, condensation and mould being a huge problem in many rental properties as a result of single glazed homes.
A spokesperson for Discount Landlord said: “It is clear that properly insulated and double-glazed properties are highly sought after by tenants as they enter 2016.This means that landlords offering accommodation which is not up to standard should begin improving their properties as soon as possible.”
“Landlords should look in to getting Rent and Legal insurance to protect themselves against any void periods that may occur as tenants move for new jobs at the start of the year,” added the spokesperson.
According to figures from the EU, UK homes are among the most expensive to heat in Europe as a result of poor maintenance and insulation.
