Are you a landlord? Have you heard about the new EPC legislation that comes into force on 1st April 2018? It means that all of your let properties must have an EPC rating of E or better to be legally let or leased as residential or commercial property. Any landlords that fail to meet these standards won’t be allowed to let their properties out to new tenants, or renew existing contracts.
Thankfully, making your property energy-efficient to comply with the new EPC legislation needn’t be complicated or expensive. It could be as simple as upgrading your boiler, installing cavity wall insulation or having solid wall insulation. You just need to let your tenants know about any upgrades you’re planning.
