Question

Your 2014 Housing Strategy states that "Through the London Rental Standard, the Mayor will also look at ways to support private landlords to improve their stock and meet new legislative requirements that will restrict the selling and renting of properties with low EPC ratings." Can you provide an update on how you are taking forward this action?

Answer for EPC Ratings

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Through my RE:NEW programme I am providing support for energy saving improvement works for properties belonging to landlords accredited to the London Rental Standard (LRS). I will also be running a new pan-London boiler scrappage scheme this winter, which will be marketed to LRS-accredited landlords. Other landlords applying to the scheme will also be strongly encouraged to join the LRS.
