Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?9:44 AM, 17th February 2021

I have four flats above a retail shop on two floors. The property was built in about 1900 and the conversion was undertaken in 2016 with full planning and building control approved and signed off.
My managing agent says I must have a fire inspection which I have had done and the report “recommended” certain minor works and a full alarm system to the common areas at considerable expense. The flats already have the normal mains wired alarms.
My agent says that recommended works should be taken as compulsory.
I do appreciate that after Grenfell the rules may have changed, but to keep upgrading every time a new regulation comes out seems excessive.
The views and experience of other landlords would be appreciated.
