Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)

Are you a landlord with a property on the island?

Then you should be aware of the upcoming minimum Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) requirements for private rentals in Scotland. 

  • From 1 April 2020, any new tenancy will require the property to have an EPC of at least band E. 
  • By 31 March 2022, all properties will need to have at least EPC band E. 

It is currently a legal requirement that all property that is marked for sale or let carries a valid EPC. The contains information about a property’s energy use and recommendations on how to reduce energy consumption. An EPC gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A to G and is valid for 10 years. 

Other occasions where you require an up to date EPC are:

  • Recently completed renovations e.g. a new heating system, an extension, or insulation
  • Implementing renewables e.g. an air source heat pump, solar PV, or solar thermal
  • Considering selling or renting out your property
  • Looking for energy efficiency advice
  • Current EPC is almost 10yrs old
