The research examined data from over 500,000 homes across the UK, looking at the impact of energy efficient homes on the bottom lines of social landlords.
- As homes become more energy efficient they are void for a shorter length of time – on average, 31% shorter for band B 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
- Rent arrears are on average half a month higher in Band F properties than in other bands.
- 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.
