Section 47: Further provision about tenants’ energy efficiency improvements regulations
133.Subsection (1) describes the further provision that may be included in the tenants’ energy efficiency regulations. Regulations can deal with the form, content and service of the request by the tenant and the response from the landlord. They may also set out exemptions from any requirement imposed by or under the regulations. Provision may also be made about how any requirement imposed by or under the regulations must be evidenced.
134.Subsection (2) provides further detail about the type of provision which may be made relating to exemptions. In this context, further provision may be made relating to the necessary permissions or consents which may be necessary before relevant energy efficiency improvements are permissible or about the likely negative impact on the value of a property of complying with the requirement to undertake relevant energy efficiency improvements.
135.Subsection (3) sets out examples of the kind of further provision that may be made in regulations relating to the evidence required to demonstrate the application of an exemption or that a property falls outside the scope of any regulations made.
