EPC’s and the Creation of Tenancies

As you are aware new and renewed tenancies must have an EPC rating of at least ‘E’ with effect from April 2018. There are circumstances where a landlord can apply to go onto an exemption database. Agents should be starting to check their portfolio to identify any properties that have a rating lower than ‘E’ in order that they can advise their landlords and, if necessary, start a programme of improvement works to bring the property up to the required standard before the deadline.
