Government consultation to increase minimum EPC rating to band C for PRS

The discrimination between the social sector and the private sector is everywhere. I have a property in a development with lots of council properties. They pay less towards the service charges, they can get their own insurance and are not forced to have terrorism cover, whereas we have to accept insurance arranged for us by the managing agent with is not competitive,...
