Energy Performance and Letting – time to take action?

 

A report by Elements Property undertaken for the Government indicates that for the period Q1 2008 to Q1 2015, 35% of Non-Domestic buildings which had an EPC survey carried out were achieving an E, F, or G rating. For the same period, 26% of Domestic properties achieved an E, F or G rating. This official Government data suggests that a significant proportion of the UK building stock could be affected by the new energy performance regulations.

 

As from 1 April 2018, there will be a requirement for any properties rented out in the private rented sector to have a minimum energy performance rating of E on an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). The EPC Regulations 2018 require some response in respect of properties that are defined as “sub-standard” in terms of energy efficiency – those whose energy performance indicator is below “E”.

 

The regulations affect both commercial and residential properties, and if you own buildings you think may be affected you should seek advice
