I have updated a property of mine with a new extra wall insulation on green deal finance, new boiler and new roof. Which has been an expensive upgrade. My tenants saw a massive improvement in their energy costs. However due to job circumstances they moved out in June.
I now have new tenants who I advised the property had just had the above improvements and they should not use a lot of energy. As the property is on a prepaid key meter I advise they could also reduce cost by transferring to direct debit payment.
When contacting the energy provider the tenants have been informed they pay £10.84 per week through their energy bills to pay on the green deal loan. They now want to me to reduce the rent by this amount.
I have tried to explain they will more than recoup this cost over the winter months.
My contract says tenant will pay all bills on the property, but dose not go into standard charges of green deal repayment plans.
I have always tried to get the best deal for my tenants in both energy and cost. However I feel really put out about this situation. Has anyone else had a similar situation?
I would love to hear anyone’s comments.
