Changes to Energy Performance Certificates (EPC’s)

We are proud of keeping a focused eye on any changes to laws and legislation which may affect our clients.

Such as the recent Government decision, which came into effect on April 1st, 2018, to require private rental properties to meet a minimum level of energy efficiency.

The move relates to Energy Performance Certificates (EPC). In layperson’s terms, EPCs rate the energy efficiency of a property from A to G (A being the most energy efficient).

They also contain recommendations on where you could make improvements.

The government plan is to ensure all EPC rated properties on the rental market are a least an E. This means it will be unlawful to rent out properties with an F or G rating.

If you have a Buy to Let property or are thinking of investing in one please give us a call and we can explain more about the proposed changes, we can also arrange for you to have an Energy Performance Certificate carried out by one of our assessors for the cost of £75.00 + VAT = £90.00 the certificates last for 10 years.

If you have any other property related questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us – we’d love to help you.
