Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards for Rented Property

On 1st April 2016 the first phase of changes for the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards for Rented Properties came into force.  Tenants are able to make a request to their landlord to allow changes to  rented properties for energy efficiency improvements.  Tenants have the responsibility of finding the funding to make these improvements.  Find out more.....

From 1st April 2018 private rented properties will need to achieve at least a band E on an EPC.  This will impact all new lets and renewals from that date onwards.  Properties with an EPC below an E cannot be let from this date unless the Landlord has registered an exemption explaining why you are unable to achieve the Band E.  Find out more....

When do I need an EPC?

An EPC is needed :
To sell or rent out a property.  You need to commission an EPC before putting your property on the market.  The EPC must be available within 7 days of the property being marketed.  EPCs for both sale and rent are valid for 10 years.  If you already have one, for example in a Home Information Pack from when you bought your property, then you can re-use it.

When installing photovoltaic panels (PV) on your roof and claiming the Feed In Tariff (FIT) at the higher rate.  Your property will need to achieve a Band D or above before the panels are installed.  An EPC will need to accompany your application and it must be dated before the installation.  Older detached properties with solid walls, for example, often struggle to achieve a band D and additional work to achieve the band D may be required in advance of the panel installation.    Find out more.....

To take advantage of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).   RHI pays participants who generate and use renewable energy to heat their building.  This includes heat pumps, biomass stoves and solar thermal.  Find out more...
