RENTERS RIGHTS: Pandemic exposes a need for clarity for renters

 

The pandemic has highlighted that millions of renters are unaware of their rights when it comes to modifying their homes and gardens.

This means that families across the North East are missing out on some serious savings as they believe they aren't allowed to install a smart meter in their property. So we spoke to Generation Rent in the North East as well as Smart Energy GB to clear a few things up.

Whilst trying to discover why so many renters don't have smart meters despite the proven financial and environmental benefits of them, Rob said the key reason is a confusion of rights. The majority of landlords have said that they would be happy for their tenants to get one installed, but tenants have been reluctant because they don't think they have the right to do so.
