EPC and banning Section 21?

Hello, I know I may be jumping the gun somewhat but if the proposed minimum EPC rules are sanctioned, and also a ban on Section 21 comes into force, what are the likely outcomes?

We will be able to evict on EPC grounds?

I know it’s a lot of conjecture, but interested in other landlords thoughts?

I wonder if the powers-that-be will change the minimum standard to a D?

Interestingly, the cost for external wall insulation will take about 40 years to payback (saving for the tenant of course), mmm….having mulled it over for a millisecond, I’ll think I’ll sell!

Thank you,

I wonder if an interest was declared by the assessor. What you wanna do is, even out of your own pocket, get an EPC (re-)done on their property. You might have to befriend the tenant a bit, let them know it’s for free and, perhaps say, it could lead to some grant measures. Get the true rating and balls them up. They don’t get to prevent a new one being done. The tenant controls the access to the property and if you can get past them, you’re laughing…literally.
