How will the new EPC regulations affect Landlords?

Late last year, the Government proposed new changes to the EPC regulations that would change the Minimum Energy Efficient Standards, coming into play between 2025 – 2028. 


At the moment, you need an EPC rating of at least an E to be able to rent out your property. The big change is that beginning in 2025, any newly rented properties will need a rating of at least a C, and any existing tenancies will have until 2028 to do the same. The changes are being put in place to ensure energy-efficient homes meet the government net-zero carbon targets.

To go alongside the change of rating, a harsher penalty up to  £30,000 per property will be dished out to a landlord for non-compliance. This penalty is currently just £5,000.
