Are you a landlord? The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) deadline is just one month away with £4,000 fines for non-compliance.
According to the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) over 300,000 rental homes are still to upgrade/renovate their properties from energy performance certificate EPC F or G up to a minimum E or higher.
The deadline for landlords to comply is 1st April 2018. That’s just 1 month to get any remedial works carried out.
Why should I bother with rental property EPC compliance?
ARLA estimates that just over 5 years ago (2012) 700,000 did not meet the standard and today, this is down to 300,000.
If you have multiple properties and have not complied, this may be a costly exercise and you may struggle to get the relevant trades in to complete any remedial works to improved the rating, insulation and performance of the property.
