We caught up with Craig Bowling of VeriSmart to bring you up-to-date
The onus on landlords to provide energy efficient accommodation has once again stepped up a gear, now that part three of the Energy Efficiency (Private Rented Property) (England and Wales) Regulations 2015 has come fully into effect.
It is now (since 1st April 2020) illegal for landlords to continue to let a property, or grant a new tenancy (including an extension or renewal), where the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is below band E – the minimum level of energy efficiency for private rented properties.
This regulation has applied since April 2018 but until now has not applied to existing tenancies.
We caught up with Craig Bowling from VeriSmart to discuss EPC’s and bring you up to speed with the latest regulations
You can check whether your property has an EPC, and if it passes here.
If you need one or you have done works since your last EPC you can contact Craig Bowling from Verismart below.
