EPC Regulations to change again from 9th of Jan 2013

8th January 2013

EPC Regulations to change again from 9th of Jan 2013: It was announced yesterday and confirmed today that the EPBD regulation updates

 due to be implemented from 9th January 2013 will include changes that affect Agents. These changes are:

  1. The front page of the EPC will no longer need to be included in the particulars. Instead the EPC rating will need to be included in all advertising material. This should be in the form of the graph where there is room, for example in the particulars. Where there is not room, for example a newspaper advert, the rating itself should be given in the form of the letter (A-G).
  2. Listed buildings will no longer be required to have an EPC done.

Again these changes will come into force from 9th Janaury 2013. For the official document please click here
I hope you find the above information useful and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.


Kind regards

Ben Robinson
