What is an EPC?
Energy Performance Certificates give tenants information on a property's efficiency and environmental impact, helping them to identify properties with higher energy efficiency and lower fuel bills. An EPC uses a scale of A-G (A being the most efficient, G the least efficient), and gives information on the property's impact on the environment.
Why have EPCs?
In a competitive rental market, you need to make your properties as attractive as possible to potential tenants, and now that every tenant has the right to view an EPC for a property, ensuring that you have this certificate available is crucial for marketing your properties - and from October it will be compulsory. Providing an EPC for your properties will ensure that you're in line with legislation, help you keep ahead of your competition, and give potential tenants peace of mind.
