New EPC Rules from 1 April

Updated: May 13, 2020


From 1st April, the new Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rules will apply to all existing tenancies in England & Wales - domestic and non-domestic.


All rented properties let will need to meet the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) of E, unless they have an exemption. That means landlords with properties with an EPC rating of F or G risk fines of up to £5,000 per property. Landlords with no EPC or an expired EPC must gain one which achieves the minimum standard.


We help our Landlords with the EPC status of their properties at the start of the lettings process to ensure they are on the right side of the law and avoid the heavy penalties non-compliance potentially risks.


If you're a residential or commercial Landlord in the Bradford area and are unsure of your status, please get in touch.


Alternative, if you prefer to investigate independently Open Rent have published a useful guide on compliance:
