Scotland to introduce EPC Min Band DMake Text Bigger
The Energy Efficiency (PRS) Regulations which were to be enacted this year are now to be introduced next year with the Min EPC rating being Band D w.e.f. 01 Apr 2022 on new leases and by 31 Mar 2025 for existing leases. This skips the previous Min Band E which was to take effect in April this year and doubles the “excessive cost” threshold to £10,000.
This is the same timetable as originally proposed, which also has Min Band C on new leases a requirement from 01 Apr 2025.
As the average EPC Rating for Scotland is D61 this leaves a lot of properties which will struggle to achieve Band D and more importantly less time to evaluate the challenges in improvements to achieve Band E which would have become evident on the original plan.
