Energy compliance EPC & DEC

All buildings with an energy performance certificate (EPC) level F or below cannot be leased after 2018 without significant works carried out in order to increase efficiency.

In summary, if a commercial or residential property doesn’t comply, and its owner for whatever reason wants to switch it to being let out after the anticipated deadline, then he can’t. The owner can, however, renew existing leases, but that owner is potentially exposed should tenants decide to move out of an F or G-rated building after the deadline date.

It is estimated that around one in five buildings fall into the F/G EPC category, including many listed or historical properties. Property owners will have limited time therefore to raise the efficiency ratings of F/G level buildings, or face them having to stand empty. In some cases, planning permission may be required, and upgrade designs may need to be drawn up, which can mean months of delays before work can actually start.
