IF you are a landlord of a residential property you should now be aware that from 1st April 2018 your Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) must have a reading of E and above, if it has not you are exposing yourself to a £4,000 fine and if you have multiple properties then you are exposing yourself to multiple fines.
You can be fined this £4,000 for not complying with the new EPC regulations which will affect you if:-
1) You renew your current tenancy with an EPC rating at F or below.
2) Create a new tenancy with an EPC rating F or below.
If you are unsure of what your EPC is then it is quick and easy to find out. If you visit www.epcregister.com and pop in your postcode you will be able to download your current EPC certificate showing you the rating.
If you find your EPC is F or below, then please get in contact with either myself or my colleague Michael who are Domestic Energy Advisors and we will be happy to advise you on what you need to do to bring your EPC up to E or above.
