Changes to Energy Performance Certificates – is your property compliant?

From April 2018 it will be unlawful to let a property with an F or G EPC rating to a new tenant, with very few exemptions. From April 2020 a minimum E rating will apply, not just to new lets but also to existing tenancies. Then from 2025 the target is for a minimum D rating and by 2030 the minimum will be C.

The new Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards are based on rental units’ Energy Performance Certificate ratings and may force landlords into substantial expenditure on each property.
