Response to energy efficiency and condition standards consultation

29 June 2017

The Scottish Government’s energy efficiency and condition standards consultation.

SAL and the CLA have submitted a response to the Scottish Government’s energy efficiency and condition standards consultation.

Whilst we share the government’s aim of eliminating fuel poverty in the private rented sector (PRS), we would like to see landlords supported and encouraged to improve the energy efficiency of their properties, rather than compelled to do so in a sector which is already burdened with a plethora of poorly enforced legislation.

With regards to condition standards, although we welcome some consolidation of landlords’ repairing obligations and some clarification of the Repairing Standard legislation, we do not support most of the changes proposed in part two of the consultation. The consultation response can be read here.
