An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a document which shows how energy efficient a property is. An EPC is valid for 10 years and is required for any home - whether it is a new build or an existing property - which is being let out to a tenant.
Since April 2018, all landlords have had to ensure their rental properties reach a minimum EPC rating of E before a new tenancy is granted. These standards will then apply to all privately rented properties from 1st April 2020, regardless of whether there is a change with the tenancy agreement or not. For this reason, we advise that any property without an EPC gets one as soon as possible to allow time for any remediating works which may be needed to bring it up to an E rating. If you need a valid EPC then get in touch today!
