I am in the process of renewing a lease with a commercial tenant for the next 6 years., The EPC conducted in Feb 2017 is an F (carried out by the previous owner just before we bought the property – the tenant was in situ at the time).
In April 2023 the EPC has to be a minimum E.
Can I continue to let till 2027 (current EPC expiry) on the F and then make changes to achieve an E
Do I need to reach the E level by 1 April 2023?
Furthermore, as the unit was let empty, should the cost of any upgrades to the EPC be covered completely in part or wholly by the LL or the tenant?
