From April 2018, the proposed legislative changes make it unlawful to let residential or commercial properties with an EPC Rating of F or G (i.e. the lowest two tiers/grades of energy efficiency). Given this risk to property owners and occupiers it is clear that a full understanding of the energy efficiency of your property assets should be attained. Owners will need to assess the costs and viability of undertaking retrofits or refurbishments.
