New energy efficient laws are soon to come into force.
From 1st April 2018 all new lets must be compliant having a minimum rating of E on the EPC.
For existing properties the law comes into effect two years later.
I suspect many landlords, especially the smaller ones, are totally oblivious.
Failure to comply will mean your property is not fit to let and you could face a fine up to £4,000 from Trading Standards.
My advice is to get ahead of the rush and get compliant as soon as possible. It may just mean a few tweaks - re-sealing windows etc - but, on the plus side, you may well find you can charge higher rents.
For any details, please feel free to message me here.
Landlords in England and Wales are being reminded than in just under a year it will be illegal to rent a property in the private rented sector that does not meet a minimum energy rating.
