EPC Hints & Tips guide for landlords
Mercantile Trust, a lender who is on our panel, partnered with Elmhurst Energy to create a free EPC Hints & Tips guide for landlords.
The proposed changes to Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) requirements are due to come into force in 2025 and it’s therefore strongly recommended that landlords create a plan of action as soon as possible.
Those looking to rent out properties in 2025 and beyond should establish what needs to be done to each property within their portfolio in order to secure an EPC rating of ‘C’ or above, what the likely costs are to do this and where the funding will come from.
With the government proposing fines of £30,000 per property for EPC failings, the deadline cannot be ignored. This guide is designed to explain clearly all of the regulatory proposals and how to proceed with a clear plan in order to make your properties energy efficient.
The guide which can be downloaded covers:
- EPC basics
- Benefits and advantages
- Funding EPC Improvements
- Help & Assistance
The government can provide guidance on how to secure finance for the EPC upgrades on your property. In addition, Wattsford Commercial Finance can broker finance for those looking to fund EPC upgrades.
