Regardless of your position on carbon emissions or any other green issue the cost of energy will become the biggest deal in the next 10 years.
All social landlords need to be delivering action on improving the energy efficiency of their stock and focussing in on the worst performing homes. It is possible to see energy becoming the biggest cost to residents after rent.
If we don't improve efficiency residents will be forced to choose between paying rent or service charges and energy bills. Guess which one most people will choose ?
I wonder what that will do to rental debt levels and RP incomes.
