Scottish Government consultation on minimum energy standards, proposing minimum C Rating for both PRS and owner-occupier sectors, and minimum B Rating for those classified as fuel poor. Cost efficiency is being deemed as payback over a lifetime, however that may be interpreted!

Closing date for comments is 27 Jul 2018.

“This government wants all our homes and buildings to be warmer, greener and more efficient and for people to reap the economic and health benefits that will bring.”

Many thanks

Not with standing the driving force behind this is the nonsense climate change. I don't see why some landlords mind the energy effiency targets onerous my properties that were band E have been band c since way back in 2012 and some think band d by mid 2020 is a major issue. Personally I find the issue of tenants rights ( that can and often are abused) a far bigger issue.

And the social rented sector? Is that to be exempt?

"nonsense climate change"

What is your evidence for this?

Social sector leasing has similar targets, the big difference is that the cost of improvement is ultimately borne by tax payers.
