EPC Deadline Looms

Updated: 30 August 2017

Landlords of both residential and commercial investment property should be aware that with effect from April 2018 if their investment property has an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of F or G, it will be unlawful to let the property.

We encourage all property investment owners to review their existing certification and action the recommendations now. Trying to find an insulation contractor or an electrician (two common areas that can improve a property’s rating) in March 2018 might be an impossible task and this could prejudice letting a vacant building or renewing a commercial lease.

If you are unsure Goadsby will be pleased to assist you.
