I have just had an EPC done which refers to the single glazing as ‘very poor’ leading to a D rating overall despite the rest of the report showing Good or Very good in all the other areas.
Planning requirements state I cannot change the windows, so what more can I do?
I am keen to get a C rating now (before tenants move in) and before the proposed changes are on the statute books. I clearly don’t want the cost later on of employing a specialist to write a report to say exactly this just to tick another bloody box for possible exemption, as I am clearly not permitted to change them to double glazing.
Any ideas anyone?
(NB will go back to the assessor about this, just wanted to throw it out there or hear from other assessors to see if there is an actual consensus on this or not with how these EPC’s are actually filled in regarding this point)
