Rental Sector for Domestic Dwellings 

 

Legislation to require the need for an Energy Performance Certificate has been extended to the rented domestic property sector as from 01 October 2008.  An EPC is required for all new tenants taking up a tenancy from that date. An EPC is not required for existing tenants resident in properties at that date.

 

Energy Performance Certificates in respect of the rental property sector are valid for 10 years. For more information concerning the EPC and its validity periods for the rental sector please visit:
