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. From the 1st April 2020, this now applies to all privately rented properties, regardless of whether there is a change with the tenancy agreement or not.
Any properties with an EPC below an E rating now needs to be actioned as a matter of urgency. If you need a valid EPC then get in touch today!
