A new law that takes efect in April 2018 will make it an offence to rent a property with an energy efficiency rating of 'F' or 'G'.

A recent English Housing Survey suggested that over 11% of houses in the private rented sector fell into this category .

At Whitehouse we were aware that this new legislation was being introdeced and about a year ago we contacted all our landlords whose properties would be effected by the new ruling.

I am pleased to report that all of these landlords took measures to improve their ratings meaning that none of our current properties will be effected by the new legislation.
