Green products

With an increasing focus on green properties in the Private Rented Sector (PRS), we are committed to helping our landlords in making sure that their properties are up to standard.

Green Further Advance

Since April 2018, landlords have been required to achieve a minimum rating of E on the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) for their rental property for new tenancies or tenancy renewals.

From April 2020, this was extended to cover existing tenancies, meaning all rented properties now need to have an EPC rating of E, even where there has been no change in tenancy. Under Government proposals, by 2025, homes in the PRS will need a minimum EPC rating of C for new tenancies and in 2028, this will extend to all homes in the sector.

Maximising the energy efficiency of a property not only ensures that landlords are complying with the latest Government regulations, but it can also make the property more attractive to prospective tenants.

We encourage our landlords to invest in energy efficient properties, thereby increasing the proportion of A-C rated properties in the private rented sector (PRS). That’s why we have a range of products available for properties with an EPC rating of A, B or C. These products are available in our portfolio product range, as well as our portfolio further advances.
