New research linking energy efficient homes to savings for landlords

There is a correlation between the energy efficiency of homes and the number of void days. As homes become more energy efficient they are void for a shorter length of time - on average, 31% shorter for band B[1] properties compared to those in bands E and F Landlords with more energy efficient stock spend less on refurbishing void homes, less on repairs and less on staff time to manage voids The highest performing band A properties spent 30% less time in arrears compared with the worst performing homes. Colder homes, especially those in band F, have on average two weeks more rent arrears than more energy efficient bands each year. Other cost savings identified include time spent seeking overdue rent payment, legal costs and court costs which decline by around 35% for more energy efficient homes
