Landlords, Do You Know Your Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards?
With regulations changing, do not get caught out with a property you are not able to legally rent out.
The government has now introduced a minimum energy efficiency standard in April 2018 and it applies to all privately rented properties that are legally required to have an EPC and where rooms are let on one of the qualifying tenancy types in England and Wales. These regulations do not affect sales properties.
We are facing changes and challenges from the government and more will be introduced over the coming months.
As from April 2018 a minimum energy efficiency standard was introduced.
Private sector landlords must not grant a new tenancy of a property this includes extensions and renewals they let after 1st April 2018 and must not let the property on an existing tenancy after 1st April 2020, where the energy performance certificate is below the level of energy efficiency for private rented properties of BAND E.
