EPC certificates warning for Landlords

Posted on February 7, 2018 by Mark Batty

EPC Certificates

Energy Performance Certificates or EPC Certificates are back in the spotlight. We all remember them first coming in during 2008 for rental properties and now 10 years later there is another requirement that all Landlords should be aware of.

Thankfully, just over 98% of our Landlord clients will not be affected in this latest round of regulation, but those who are need to take note.

From 1st April 2018 Landlords cannot grant a new tenancy of the property if the EPC rating is F or G. By April 2020 no property at all can be rented with a rating of F or G.

We are contacting our Landlords who are affected over the coming weeks.

However, there is a warning to all Landlords as the Government has declared its wish to raise these standards further, such that the minimum standard is likely to rise to a D rating and a C Rating in 2030
