From the 1st April 2018 any residential or commercial property that is let under a new rental agreement will be required to have a minimum of a Band E energy rating.
DOMESTIC EPC MINIMUM ENEREGY RATING
COMMERCIAL EPC MINIMIUM ENERGY RATING
If a property should fall within Band F or G then improvments to the energy efficiency of the premises should be undertaken to reach a Band E. Only the low cost measures need to be installed and if the property still does not reach a Band E then it will be exempt. Please refer to the flowchart below.
