One of my property EPC scored 76 as C, 5 points away from band B, the EPC report listed the things to do to improve in order to gain certain points towards the EPC score. For example, in my case, a condensing boiler 4 points, LED lighting 1 point, etc.
I redid the EPC assessment after I installed a new condensing boiler and replaced with LED lightings, interestingly, the score remains 76 the same as before, remained at C, not a single point increase.
I understand while my EPC at C isn’t too much to worry about, at least for now, there’d be plenty of properties at critical score and band.
For whoever wants to improve their EPC score, it seems a total joke that the score is a moving target that is almost impossible to shoot.
The error or margin between those “professional” can easily invalid thousands of pounds of genuine improvement. You can get one assessor giving you extra points without doing anything, another giving you nothing for improvements the last assessor asked for.
Does anyone have any advice for landlords to manage such a mess?
