Is being in a ‘No Mains Gas’ area a valid reason for EPC exemption? We have a rental property which is in an area that has no mains gas so it has LPG fuel instead and got an EPC F rating.
The person who did the EPC said that the property would have a D rating if it was linked to Mains Gas and suggested that we apply for an exemption since this is something outside of our control.
I cannot decide if it is covered by any of the exemption eligibility criteria as it is clearly not cost effective, but is presumably not ’capable of being installed within the Green Deal’s Golden Rule’ so doesn’t seem to meet this criteria.
Since linking to mains gas was not listed on the recommend measures on the EPC, will they simply insist that I undertake these measures instead?
Can anyone advise on this please?
