Do most landlords realise the impact of the cost to get to a level C EPC if this becomes legislated as a requirement?
We have a property that was fully renovated 5 years ago to full building regs. It had 100mm insulation added in the floor and ceiling, 50mm insulation in the walls and fully double glazed etc etc.
We needed a new EPC to be carried out last week and it only achieved an E rating!
The cost of the renovation was just a fraction under £100,000 all in. If a property is older build it will not get anywhere near a C rating we would suggest.
Who is going to do all the work required on all the properties?
There are not enough workmen available at the moment and the cost will become unviable to keep a lot as rentals.
