Landlords beware: New EPC rulings may harm your cashflow!

Commercial Boiler Installation

Almost 12 months after the Government’s new energy bill came into effect, a number of manufacturers have urged many heating and maintenance contractors to persuade their customers to embrace the new standards in order to avoid potential lost rental revenues.

As of 1st April 2018 energy efficiency regulations in non-domestic buildings required landlords, including those in the public sector, who own or operate non-domestic rental properties, to make sure that their properties have an EPC rating of band ‘F’ or ‘G’. It is no longer possible to issue a tenancy to new or existing tenant if the property does not meet that requirement. And from 1st April 2023, it will landlords must not continue letting a non-domestic property if it has an EPC rating below ‘E’

A recent report from a multi-national real estate service estimates that nearly 20% of commercial property buildings in England and Wales are likely to fall short of new Government energy standards.

Darren Finley, Chief Commercial Officer at Ideal Commercial Boilers, says: “With the new energy efficiency legislation less than a year away, it is important to act now rather than wait for the changes to come into force.

“Commercial landlords and businesses need to take a proactive approach to their heating installations and maintenance strategies. Contractors should be encouraging their clients to act now to prevent properties from becoming a liability rather than an investment. This is a great opportunity for contractors to deepen their client relationships by providing advice that will ensure commercial properties continue to generate rental revenue.

“While replacing an inefficient boiler with an efficient one is the obvious solution, we would also urge contractors to use it as a chance to reiterate the benefits of routine inspection protecting the whole heating system, encouraging clients to consider preventative maintenance, monitoring gas bills, introducing controls and water treatment.”

At SEM Facilities our fully trained, Gas Safe and Corgi Registered engineers are highly experienced in domestic and commercial boiler installation services for all types of properties. Regular commercial boiler maintenance is essential because faulty or poorly maintained boilers present a severe health risk to you and your family or staff due to their ability to release poisonous carbon monoxide gas that is odourless, colourless and tasteless.
