Changes to EPC Regulations
Posted on 13th February 2019 at 17:24
Lancaster Law Firm, MG Legal note that the changes in regulations which took place in April last year are causing problems for Commercial properties.
The EPC contains various information about the property’s energy usage and its effectiveness. The Property is then given a rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient)…similar to a report card at school, only this time getting an F or G could mean much worse for you than detention! Conveyancing Solicitors will always review an EPC prior to completion of a matter. This is because every property, save for agricultural buildings or buildings due to be demolished, must have an EPC if they are put on the open market, up for let or a lease renewal. These are transactions that MG Legal’s property team, is very much experienced in.
