EPC regulations require landlords to obtain an EPC rating when selling or renting a property. Despite the changes, properties still require an EPC rating although there is no longer a requirement for new tenancies to have a rating of C or above.
While the discussions regarding EPC regulations continue, it’s essential for you to stay informed and prepare for potential changes. Consider reviewing your properties for energy efficient opportunities, making improvements where feasible. Stay updated on any changes in regulations, as they may impact your obligations and opportunities.
A general election could see EPC regulations make a potential return, so keeping your energy efficiency at a high level could set you apart in a competitive rental market.
