New Energy Performance Rating Regulations April 2018

Calling all Landlords!

From the 1st April 2018, new regulations mean that if you are renting a property it must have a minimum energy performance rating of E.

The current Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) range in grading from A (best) to G (worst), so if your rental property currently holds an E on its EPC, after the 1st April this will be unlawful under the new regulations. In short, this means that you cannot begin a new tenancy, or renew a current contract, without being faced with a fine of up to £4000.00.


So What Next?

Well, if your property is graded E or above then congratulations; you're done! Look no further.

Really though, your rental property should already have a current EPC, so that's a good start! But if not, you need to get in touch with a qualified energy surveyor in order for them to assess the properties energy rating. You can find a local surveyor here by entering the post code of the property.
