I have had a raft of new EPC’s done and the assessors have just emailed me the link to the .gov site where they are stored. You can’t download them (I have tried).
Question – do I have to send a copy of the new EPC to the existing tenant? (they already had a copy of the previous valid one when they moved in)
Can I just send them the link also for reference?
As I understood it you DON’T have to give the tenant a copy of the new EPC (unless you plan on issuing them with a S21) as the whole point of an EPC is to alert the incoming tenant about the eco status of the property before they enter into a contract to move in, so they are aware of the costs of running the property etc. Am I right?
Is it also the case that you don’t even have to carry out an EPC even if its date has expired if the existing tenant is in situ – in other words, you only really need to get a valid EPC in place before the NEXT tenant moves in?
