Energy Performance Certificate Update
Health & Safety First
Space Invaders Article Featured in the May Edition of RICS Building Surveying Journal
The Energy Performance of Buildings (England and Wales) Regulations 2012 came into force on 9 January 2013, consolidating existing regulations, introducing new duties and removing other duties that were deemed unnecessary. Regulations covering when an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) needs to be provided on construction, sale or letting of a building have been in place since 2007, however, the latest Regulations not only consolidate existing legislation but also introduce revised requirements, in relation to timescales for commissioning of certificates, commercial advertisements and displaying certificates in public buildings over 500m2. The requirement for Display Energy Certificates (DEC) in public buildings to show the operational efficiency of the building over a 12 month period was also tightened in the 2013 Regulations and is now required in public buildings over 500m2.
Further changes are afoot, from 9th July 2015, the requirement for a DEC will extend to buildings occupied by public authorities and frequently visited by the public with a total useful floor area of over 250m2; and
From April 2018 it will be unlawful to lease a residential or business premise that does not achieve a minimum energy efficiency standard (EPC rating E). Whilst exact details of these proposals will be dealt with by secondary legislation, they highlight the potentially serious consequences for landlords if properties have an ‘F’ or ‘G’ rating, as they could potentially become unmarketable.
We are working hard to keep our clients up to date with the latest changes in advance so these can be implemented as and when they are required. If you would like to discuss the latest changes to Part L further please contact us.
