Ask your MP to close the cold homes loophole

A landlord escaping through a loophole

The UK has some of the leakiest homes in Europe - wasting us millions of pounds in energy bills each year.

From April, private landlords in England and Wales won’t be allowed to rent out the coldest homes. But there’s a loophole. Landlords won't have to improve their properties if that would cost them any money up front (yes, you read that right). 

If the government won't close the loophole, tenants could be left in the cold with a £1bn energy bill.

Write to your MP asking them to close the loophole and instead set a cost cap for landlords. 

Your letter will have the most impact if you personalise it with details of your own experiences, and how much you could save.
