From 6 April 2012, landlords and letting agents will have just seven days to produce an EPC after they’ve started marketing the property for new tenants, rather than the previous 28 day period.
Also, the full report must also be provided to prospective tenants rather than just the graph showing energy efficiency, as at present.
‘EPCs give tenants vital information about the energy efficiency of their property and also contain an estimate of their utility bills,’ said David Salusbury, chairman of the National Landlords Association.
‘They also help landlords make informed decisions about how to upgrade the energy efficiency of their properties by recommending improvements.’
The Accommodation Shop can provide advice and help you gain an EPC for your rental property with the minimum of fuss and expenditure.
