The ban on granting a new tenancy for a property with an energy efficiency rating of less than Band E was recently extended to include existing tenancies. The course will explore the practical options available to improve the energy efficiency of your properties and the cost effectiveness of the differing options. We will also cover the exemptions to the regulations and qualifying for available grants to fund improvements. Whilst the course works individually, it also complements the Energy Efficiency Regulations course which covers the wider impact of poor energy efficiency.

This training course qualifies for 3 continuous professional development (CPD) points which can help towards or maintain your accreditation with the NRLA. If you are interested in becoming an accredited landlord with the NRLA, CPD points are necessary to achieve that status. 

NRLA Accreditation recognises landlords who have agreed to maintain professional standards in the management and maintenance of their rented property and deal fairly and professionally with their tenants. Accredited members demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of their responsibilities and obligations and strive to maintain, increase and improve their knowledge of the market through training and development. CPD points are awarded for all activities which improve those attributes and are a requisite of membership of the NRLA Accreditation Scheme.
