Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)

As a landlord you’re responsible for obtaining an EPC for each property you let, whether it is a house, self-contained flat, bedsit or even a shared house.

An EPC gives a property an energy efficient rating of between A (for the most efficient properties) and G. It must be produced by a qualified Domestic Energy Assessor but is valid for 10 years and can be reused as many times as you need during that period.

Property advertisements must contain an EPC rating and you must make one available free of charge to prospective tenants. Failing to obtain an EPC before you market your property could result in penalty of £200 per dwelling.
