Hello, I’m about to exchange on a six-bed (all with kitchenette and en suite shower) in a large period house. It is being sold to me with an EPC level of D.
Currently, this is fine and it comes with a three-year guarantee income from the local council (the tenant). However, what happens if the EPC requirement on HMOs changes to a minimal say of EPC level C during the rental contract with the council?
Also, two rooms are in the loft and there is no room to put extra insulation in if required. Am I sitting on a time bomb? The purchase price is good and the returns for a London borough are excellent- so it makes me think it’s all too good to be true!!
