I have received below an email from a company who were going to improve my rented houses for FREE. All I have to do was to comply with certain requirements ( which I did ) and give £150 per property which would have been refunded at the end……..
We are writing to inform you that the Conservative Government have announced on Thursday 23rd July that they have closed the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund for all new applications with immediate effect.
We are aware that you have complied with the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund’s scheme requirements.
In doing this you were in a position to make an application.
The Conservative Government’s announcement is silent on what customers who have paid for these services are to do.
What can you do next?
We would urge you to make contact with the Department of Energy and Climate Change on either 0300 123 1234 or their website: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/department-of-energy-climate-change and enter into discussions with them on how you can recover the costs you have incurred in meeting their requirements for making an application.
Also, we advise that you contact your local counsellor and/or your local Member of Parliament so that they can take up the matter with Amber Rudd the Secretary of State for the Department of Energy and Climate Change on your behalf.
Has anymore else received a similar email and what can we do? It must affect 000’s of Landlords…
