Pressure group urges £5,000 cap on energy efficiency work

An energy efficiency lobbying group says it backs new government energy efficiency guidelines to improve 300,000 private rented homes – but it says there should be a £5,000 cap on the cost of work per property. It also says compliance with new domestic energy efficiency standards coming into effect next April could cost many landlords as little as £600 per home. However, landlords may need further assistance with securing funds if there is substantial work required.
