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

As the title suggests, I’m considering getting a BTL via a limited company with the intention of letting it to family – who would claim housing benefit. The family already lives in a council flat and benefits from getting housing benefit.
The council flat is not fit for them anymore and I thought instead of council placing them in accommodation (which would be an AST and at risk of being temporary) I can provide a more stable home with no intention of eviction.
Is there anything I need to consider, legally or financially, or is this simply another BTL via LTD Co.? I appreciate the risk of non payment and any risk of arguments arising from working with family.
