An EPC gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and is valid for 10 years.
Since 1 April 2020, landlords can no longer let or continue to let properties covered by the MEES Regulations if they have an EPC rating below E, unless they have a valid exemption in place.
If you are currently planning to let a property with an EPC rating of F or G, you need to improve the property’s rating to E, or register an exemption, before you enter into a new tenancy.
If you are currently letting a property with an EPC rating of F or G, and you haven’t already taken action, you must improve the property’s rating to E immediately, or register an exemption.
If your property is currently empty, and you are not planning to let it, you don’t need to take any action to improve its rating until you decide to let it again.
To market your property you are legally required to have a valid (EPC) Energy Performance Certificate.
Gables Letting & Management will give a free market appraisal to assess the current rental value of your property. This will be based on our extensive knowledge of the local market and analyse all recently achieved rentals for similar properties, recommending the best asking price. We may also advise you on ways you could attract a larger number of potential tenants.
