Hillman Brown & a Leading National Housing Association

January 2011 - August 2012


Initial contact and discussions with representatives at a Leading National Housing Association have proved to be very promising with an expected opportunity to review the insulation requirements of a minimum of up to 400 houses from their housing stock. Funding is being arranged with a view to commencing the surveys once permission has been received.

Landlords forced to Insulate Homes

Hillman Brown (Insulation Division) are constantly being approached by Private Landlords, Letting Agencies and Housing Associations following a visit to their tenants by our advisors, informing all households of their eligibility of the Governments Home Insulation Grant Scheme and the "Free" "No Obligation Surveys" we carry out to determine those eligable.

The changes that have been announced (November 2010 by Energy and Climate Change secretary Chris Huhne) mean that “from 2015 all landlords will be expected to make reasonable home improvements or incur a fine and their tenants will also be given the right to request home energy saving measures”. Furthermore, Local Authorities will also be urged to demand that landlords improve Energy Efficiency through Loft & Cavity Wall Insulation in the worst – performing properties.
