Timothy Douglas, Head of Policy and Campaigns at Propertymark comments on Rishi Sunak’s statement regarding Net Zero and Energy Efficiency Targets.

“Property agents have been desperate for clarity from the UK Government on new plans for energy efficiency targets and now we know that the planned changes will be scrapped with no new targets for homeowners and landlords.

Propertymark continues to want to see more energy efficient homes, but as we have long said the rules and requirements must be realistic and achievable for the sector.


In the short term, increasing grants for the boiler upgrade schemes will support more landlords and homeowners, but we know from member agents that awareness of the scheme remains low. Despite the cooling of approach from the Prime Minister we hope that this hands-off way of doing things allows homeowners and landlords to improve properties at a more flexible and affordable timetable which they can more easily manage.”
