Buy to let owners told to work with tenants on sustainability issues

Buy to let owners have been encouraged to work with their tenants on issues regarding sustainability.

The British Property Federation's director of policy (real estate) Ian Fletcher has suggested that landlords communicate more openly with residents about possible changes to be made to a buy to let property.

He said that by working together, they can "deliver the best sustainability outcomes".

His comments follow on from GVA Grimley's research, which found that 89 per cent of tenants do not believe their landlords interact with them enough regarding environmental issues.

It also reported that 40 per cent of occupiers have not had contact from their landlords over the last year concerning the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme, which came into effect in April 2010 and obligates businesses to reduce their carbon emission levels through sustainability efforts.

Mr Fletcher added that by co-operating with one another, "it is the way that we are going to have to go to make the really big savings and the really big contributions towards the environment". ADNFCR-1222-ID-800276953-ADNFCR
