I have a few Grade II buildings and have always worked on the basis that they are exempt from EPCs. However, I have heard that as part of the EPC standard (i.e. must be E or above to let) that comes in in April, all exempt properties need to be registered. So, not knowing if listed buildings are automatically registered, I googled the relevant gov.co.uk page and was surprised to find the below statement which shows that a) they may not be automatically exempt and, b) somehow, we need to prove it.
From the Government site:
“You don’t need an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) if you can demonstrate that the building is any of these:
– listed or officially protected and the minimum energy performance requirements would unacceptably alter it.”
As such, it seems we need to prove that any energy upgrades would unacceptably alter it (which is surely the call of English Heritage)…so, how would one go about proving this. And…do we really need to?
