Landlords, letting agents and tenants are being offered a bespoke void space solution when it comes to managing energy in their rental properties.
The offer comes from Tenant Shop, part of the Inchora Group, which has teamed up with ScottishPower with a view to helping landlords manage their energy needs, with a range of tariffs available, including 45 days of no standing charge when the property is vacant so that landlords will only pay for the energy that they use during that time.
Gillian Noble, sales director at ScottishPower, commented: “We are delighted to be working with Tenant Shop to offer letting agents an efficient and simple energy management system.
“Tenant Shop’s excellent reputation and its strong relationships with letting agents makes them the ideal partner to help us deliver our commitment to making energy management easier for landlords and tenants across the UK.”
ScottishPower recently announced that it will be the first big energy company in the UK to produce 100% green electricity.
Glenn Seddington, chief sales officer of Inchora Group, said: “By choosing ScottishPower as our energy provider we are able to offer our agents, their landlords and tenants not only the most appropriate tariff for their needs but also a company set to become the first large energy company in the UK to produce 100% green electricity.
“Landlords can now easily manage energy bills between tenancies and minimise cost. We know that for landlords and tenants setting up accounts with energy providers can be an administrative headache.
“For landlords it can cost them more than just time, particularly if properties are unoccupied for several weeks between tenancies, or prior tenants haven’t settled their final bills. This partnership will provide the perfect solution to these issues in the private rental sector.”
