Landlords and Energy Performance Certificates

Updated: Nov 28, 2019


As from the 1st April 2018 there is a requirement for any properties rented out in the private rented sector to have a minimum energy performance certificate EPC rating of "E" or above on an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). 

The regulations have come into force for new lets and renewals of tenancies with effect from 1st April 2018 and for all existing tenancies on 1st April 2020. It will be unlawful to rent a property which breaches the requirement for a minimum "E" EPC rating, unless there is an applicable exemption. A civil penalty of up to £4,000 will be imposed for breaches. There are separate regulations effective from 1st April 2016 under which a tenant can apply for consent to carry out energy efficiency improvements in privately rented properties


If a Landlord or Letting Agent has not provided an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC Rating) to the tenant, the Landlord cannot legally evict the tenant at the end of the tenancy under Section 21.  


So ensuring you have a valid EPC Certificate is paramount in protecting your investment and potentially regaining your property at the end of the tenancy without incurring legal expense and possibly lost income.​​
