Question

Energy Performance Certificates (England) | England | Pre-tenancy (England)

EPCs from 2025 and 2028

4 May 2022 | 1 comment

A search for information on changes to EPC regulations returned this:

‘The government has suggested a change to the law requiring all new rental tenancies to have a rating of C and above by 1 April 2025, while existing tenancies will have to meet this target by 2028’.

The article which followed didn’t seem to be aware of the possibility of registering exemptions, or of the landlord’s expenditure cap of £3500 inc VAT for works completed since October 1st 2017 – so there was no mention of whether the cap will change and whether there will be a new cut-off date.

Do you have any insight?  One commenter seemed to think the cap might be raised to £10,000!

    Unfortunately, you know as much as we do!

    The dates and energy levels you mention are what we understand. We are currently working on those principles with our properties and trying to improve energy efficiency to a minimum of C whenever we do any work.

    We also understand the cap is to be raised to £10k.

    None of this has been decided by the government yet, but there’s unlikely to be any other way for the country to achieve net-zero.
