Energy Performance Certificate London
Landlords and property owners in England and Wales are legally obligated to provide Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) for any residential or commercial property being leased, built, or sold. Additionally, EPCs are now required at the construction stage of all dwellings.
These certificates rate a building’s energy efficiency from A to G and help identify areas within your property where improvements can be made to reduce CO² emissions. So, if you’re a landlord or property owner in England or Wales, then seek professional assistance to ensure compliance with the regulations.
As a landlord, it is imperative to note that you are prohibited from creating any new tenancies in England or Wales without an EPC rating of E or above. This directive has been in effect since April 2020 and extends to existing tenancies. It is significant to understand that over one million dwellings in Wales and England currently fail to meet the new rules, which could potentially result in substantial fines. If you are a landlord, It’s likely that one or all of your tenanted properties are within the one million.
