Urgent tenancy help required please?

Appeal to Scottish Government on energy efficiency improvement works

Great approach by the membership organisations representing landlords in Scotland.

Although the current plan is for the first milestone of Band E on new lets to slip to 01 Oct 2020 (from 01 Apr 2020), the back stop date on ALL tenancies remains unchanged at 31 Mar 2022, at which the new higher Band D on new lets kicks-in.

In addition the current proposals only take credit for energy efficiency work undertaken after 01 Apr 2020. For the landlords who were aware of the impending changes since the early consultation phases and were pro-active in undertaking work prior to this date this is a stiff pill to swallow. And with the bill not yet approved this 01 Apr 2020 date may slip as is conditional on the 01 Oct 2020 date!

And for our cousins south of the border, the cost cap on applying for exception in Scotland is £5,000/property!!!

Typical prices in NE Scotland range £100 - £130 for a small property and may be higher for larger houses. VAT may or may not be charged. And like low cost MOTs, some C1 & C2 observations may not be real.... Read More

It would seem reasonable that an EICR marked Satisfactory is accepted as such, without delving into the individual fault codes. Especially in the is case where you have sought a second option and appears a not a critical issue.... Read More
