    Are you concerned about staying warm in your rented property?

    If you are concerned about high heating bills and warmth levels in a property that you rent, it is best to first speak with your landlord to see what you can agree.  From April 2018 there is a new law to ensure that privately rented homes meet basic energy efficiency requirements.  Under new ‘Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards’ (MEES) legislation, landlords cannot grant a new lease for a property with an Energy Performance rating below ‘E’.  Warmer Homes Stafford can advise landlords or tenants about the help and grants that are available to support home heating and insulation improvements and repairs.
