While this is a great initiative to keep tenants warm and healthy, it would be a shame to see this place an unnecessary cost burden on landlords. Many private landlords and even some investors may struggle to find funding to upgrade their properties, potentially resulting in selling it (which means another rental down), or increasing rents as the costs to own increase.
