Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?9:44 AM, 17th February 2021
About A week ago 125
I had an EPC RATED”E”issued November 19 (valid for 10 years), but Environmental health are trying to enforce MEES on lovely small 2 bed flat above shop.
I’ve had the same “HAPPY” tenant for last 8 years and showed the Licensing officer the EPC rated “E”. The property was passed for “licensing” however the Licensing officer stated that they’d be referring to Environmental Health because they think the property is not warm enough, because of electric heating throughout, despite myself furnishing them with my up to date EPC “E” rated certificate.
Environmental Health officer appointment is 4 weeks from now.
I thought the whole idea of an EPC was to reflect the overall energy efficiency of a building and thus at an “E” is compliant with current MEES legislation or what’s the point of the EPC”?
Any comments very much appreciated.
