Since the introduction of the 2012 EPC Regulations, which came into force last January 2013, landlord’s in Leicester are having to decide whether or not their premises should display the Energy Performance Certificate (‘EPC’).
The changes will affect premises which are frequently visited by the public and have a floor area of more than 500sq m, these premises will have to display the EPC, if one has already been carried out at the property.
This means tenants may need to enquire with the landlord whether an EPC has been issued previously and may require an enquiry being raised of the previous owners, where applicable.
The 2012 Regulations have also affected residential properties in that all sales and letting advertisements must display the EPC rating and listed buildings no longer need to have an EPC before being marketed.
