From 1st April 2018 it is a legal requirement to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) for all new rentals on or after that date. Existing properties will be required to have an EPC within 2 years or when there is a new rental agreement in place, whichever is the sooner. The minimum rating for all let properties is to be ’E.’ Fines can be imposed on those who do not meet these new requirements.
Mercia Insurance Brokers have teamed up with Phil Baxter of Baxter Development Solutions. For a flat fee starting at £50 – no VAT- the property will be visited and an EPC rating assessment completed and a certificate issued. Advice on alterations necessary to improve the energy rating will also be provided.
