ALMOST ONE IN TEN HOMES COULD BECOME ‘UNRENTABLE’ BY 2018

Nearly one in ten properties currently available on the rental market could become un-rentable by 2018 if government plans for new legislation go ahead, according to fresh data released by Quick Move Now.

The 2015 Energy Efficiency Regulations, passed in March 2015, set out minimum energy efficiency standards for England and Wales. These regulations make it unlawful for landlords to grant a new lease for properties that have an energy performance certificate (EPC) rating below E, from 1 April 2018, unless the property is registered as an exemption.
