Eco-flat rented! (May12)

My eco-rented flat near Portobello Rd has been rented.  See FT article, I wrote about it

Like all properties that are being sold or let, I had to have an Energy Performance Certificate carried out.  I was horrified by the first one that I had done because it was totally inaccurate – and didn’t reflect any of the work I’d had carried out, including the insulation.    When challenged the assessor explained that if he couldn’t see something, he couldn’t include it.

I’m not convinced this makes it a very useful exercise.  I have other concerns too – so I’ve been commissioned to write another article for the FT on Energy Performance Certificates and the Green Deal.
