Advice for landlords
Reminder to landlords and letting agents: by law, you are required to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) for all of your properties.
An EPC contains information about the property’s energy usage and typical energy costs and recommendations on how to reduce energy and save money. They give a property an ‘energy efficiency’ rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and are valid for 10 years. They are required whenever a property is built, sold or rented.
A landlord or letting agent must be able to provide a valid EPC to any prospective property owner or tenant. If not, Trading Standards officers can impose a fine of up to £200.
Visit Gov.uk for further details of private tenants rights and responsibilities in the UK.
Owner, landlord or manging agents’ details may be passed on to a partner agency, in line with statutory duties.
