Landlords and tenants of both domestic and non-domestic private rented premises should start preparing for new regulations requiring many of them to make energy efficiency improvements to their properties before they can continue to be rented out.
The Government has now issued the necessary regulations. From 1 April 2016, private landlords of domestic properties in England and Wales will have to consent to specific types of energy efficiency improvements their tenants want to carry out.
From 1 April 2018, private landlords will not be able to rent out either domestic or non-domestic properties that have not achieved an ‘E’ energy rating. There is a limited range of exemptions and exceptions, including properties:
The exemptions/exceptions are recorded in a central register and expire after five years, unless renewed.
From 1 April 2023, the requirement for an ‘E’ energy rating will extend to existing tenancies.
