What are the new EPC changes?

February 21, 2019

At the moment, you need an EPC rating of at least an E to be able to rent out your property. The big change is that beginning in 2025, any newly rented properties will need a rating of at least a C, and any existing tenancies will have until 2028 to do the same. The changes are being put in place to ensure energy-efficient homes meet the government net-zero carbon targets.

To go alongside the change of rating, a harsher penalty up to  £30,000 per property will be dished out to a landlord for non-compliance. This penalty is currently just £5,000.
