Energy Performance Certificates

Following Grenette’s post in July about the UK’s introduction of Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) I thought I’d update you.

Today the UK government has made it mandatory for all landlords to give new tenants an EPC showing the energy efficiency of their rented property. Landlords who refuse to provide EPC will be fined.

This rating, similar to that on home appliances, is intended to allow potential tenants to consider energy efficiency and fuel costs and should highlight means by which the energy efficiency of a property can be improved.

EPC is part of a UK government push to focus on increase energy efficiency. Recently this has also included giving grants for cavity wall and loft insulation.
