EPC required for HMO where rooms are on seperate tenancy agreements?Make Text Bigger
I can’t find a definitive answer and would like some help. I have a non-licensed HMO’s (licence not required) and let the rooms out on separate tenancy agreements. Do I need to provide my tenants with an EPC?
As they share all the facilities and only have exclusivity in their individual rooms an EPC seems to be worthless…..I have looked on the web and there seems to be differing opinions, and it’s really confusing knowing the up to date legislation and requirements.
Waiting for your answers with bated breath!
Find out if your property is covered by the Regulations
The Domestic Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) Regulations set a minimum energy efficiency level for domestic private rented properties.
The Regulations apply to all domestic private rented properties that are:
- let on specific types of tenancy agreement
- legally required to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
Answer these questions to find out whether your property is covered by the Regulations
1. Is your property let on one of the following types of domestic tenancies:
- an assured tenancy?
- a regulated tenancy?
- a domestic agricultural tenancy?
2. Is your property legally required to have an EPC? If the property you let has been marketed for sale or let, or modified, in the past 10 years then it will probably be legally required to have an EPC.
