3. EPC's

Since October 2008 all homes bought, sold or rented out require an EPC. The certificate provides 'A' to 'G' ratings for the building, with 'A' being the most energy efficient and 'G' being the least, with the average up to now being 'D'.

From April 2016, landlords cannot unreasonably refuse requests from their tenants for consent to energy efficiency improvements, where financial support is available such as the Green Deal or the Energy Company Obligation (ECO).

From April 2018, all private rented properties will be required to achieve a minimum energy efficiency standard rating. The required standard is likely to be set at an EPC rating of "E".
