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
