Managing a property portfolio, however big or small, can be costly in today’s world of energy efficiency. Here at Menai, we aim to take the pain out of property upgrades for private and public sector landlords while improving curb appeal, improving tenant well-being and potentially increasing property value.
We specialise in Grants. Grants are essentially ‘free money’. There is nothing to pay back!
With us, its easy and straight forward for landlords to upgrade their property portfolio at little or no cost. Our exceptional support is available to private and public sector landlords to upgrade their existing property portfolio with the help of our grant funding options, energy efficiency products and energy advice services.
Why should Landlords care about energy efficiency?
From 1st April 2018 it is a requirement for any private rental property, newly let or renewed, to have an energy performance rating of E or above. From 1st April 2020 this will be extended to all existing tenancies. It will be unlawful to let out a property which breaches the requirement for a minimum E rating, unless there is an applicable exemption.
Potential fines to landlords could come to as much as £5,000 per rented property.
