From October 1 2008, the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive became effective across the private rented sector.
This legislation only applies to properties entering the market from October 1 2008 and does not apply to existing tenancy agreements or to tenancy renewals.
This legislation states that all residential rental properties must have a valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) for tenants to view before contracts are signed.
An EPC tells you and the prospective tenant/s how energy efficient your property is; the impact the property has on the environment and includes recommendations on ways to improve the property's energy efficiency. The EPC must be made available to all prospective tenants.
We can arrange for an EPC to be prepared on your behalf.
