EPC’s for Rented Properties
When buildings are to be rented out, the landlord is responsible for ensuring a valid certificate is made available to all prospective tenants. The certificates are valid for 10 years from the date of issue and now the scheme has been in place for 10 years epc’s are staring to expire. To clarify the position, rented properties with a tenant in place when the epc expires don’t have to be renewed the certificate until the property is re-let. This could have an advantage if you intend to make improvements to the property between lets by waiting so the new certificate can reflects them.
April 2018 Changes for rented Properties
From April 2018, Landlords whose properties have a rating F or G on the Energy Performance Certificate (epc) will no longer be allowed to rent out that property until improvements have been made to bring the rating up to at least an E rating.
