As some clients may be aware, there’s yet more legislation for landlords later this year with the introduction of Energy Performance Certificates. (EPC’s)

Introduced as part of the Energy Performance for Buildings Directive, EPC’s will be compulsory for all properties rented after 1st October 2008.

The Energy Performance Certificate will look rather like the labels you see on Fridges and Washing Machines and give you a guide to how energy efficient something is.

It should be noted that EPC’s are NOT REQUIRED for properties that are already let, it purely relates to property let after October 1st.  

To enable us to be prepared for the introduction of EPC’s we will be getting all property advertised at September 1st assessed. As I write, we have yet to finalise a standard price but this will be confirmed to you pre September 1st and will be billed to you as normal with your property statement in the same way as a Gas Safety Certificate. The EPC will then not be required to be re-tested for 10 years unless the property is altered substantially.
