Axe plans to force buy-to-let owners to pay up to £10,000 to boost energy efficiency, say campaigners.
Campaigners are calling for plans to charge landlords up to £10k to be scrapped.
Plans are for all new rental homes to have an energy rating of C or above.
From 2028, all rental properties will need to meet the new standard, even where it is not a new tenancy agreement.
The Government has suggested that, in meeting these targets, landlords should be expected to pay up to £10,000 to make the necessary improvements.
