Receive £500 towards improving your property’s energy rating

We’re delighted to offer MHBS landlords up to £500 for any works completed that improve their property’s Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating by at least one band, to a minimum of C rating.

Our new £500 Greener Living Reward is designed to help you take steps to ensuring your property becomes more energy efficient and cost efficient sooner. The initiative forms part of our recently launched Thrive Agenda as we all strive to be environmentally friendly for a more sustainable future.

It’s also just one of the ways that we’re helping you prepare for planned government regulation that will see tighter restrictions applied to the energy performance of rental properties. We’ve outlined the planned changes below. To find out more about what an EPC is, visit the government’s page.

What are the proposed EPC regulatory changes?

The current proposal means that from 31 December 2028, all rental properties will need an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of C or above. Once the regulation has been finalised we’ll confirm this to you. Currently, properties require a rating of ‘e’ or higher.
