NEWSFLASH- MINIMUM EPC RATING TO BE INCREASED FOR PRIVATELY RENTED PROPERTIES FROM E TO B BY 2030
The government’s 2019 consultation has set a future target for all privately rented properties to achieve a minimum energy performance rating of B by 2030. The current requirement is all rented properties must have minimum energy performance rating of E on an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).
Landlords will be required to carry out cost-effective works to boost the rating if the costs are equal or greater to the savings on energy bills over 7 years. If this test is not met, landlords are able to register an exemption that is valid for five years.
The government are still seeking views on this proposal and the consultation closes at 11:45pm on 9 June 2021.
