From the 1st of October 2008, all rental properties with a new tenancy in England and Wales will be required to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).
A landlord will need to provide an EPC, which will be valid for ten years, to prospective tenants the first time you let or re-let your property after the 1st October 2008. However you will not need to provide an EPC certificate to tenants that renew their contracts as it is not necessary to supply an EPC to an existing tenant.
What is an Energy Performance Certificate?
The Energy Performance Certificate tells you how efficient and environmentally friendly your property is and the environmental impact of your property. Both the energy efficiency and environmental impact are worked out on a scale of A-G with A being the most efficient.
Here at A to Z Property Services we can arrange for EPC’s to be commissioned immediately to enable us to bring your property to market without delay.
