Services for landlords

Boosting your EPC is easier than you may think

We can help you on your journey toward achieving an energy efficient rental property

If you are a landlord, from April 2018, your property will have to achieve an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating or ‘E’, or higher.

As Cornwall’s leading energy experts, we can help you to meet the new Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards by identifying and helping you to make the most cost effective improvements to your property.

By taking action now you can protect your investment by ensuring that rental incomes are retained and the need for major repairs are reduced.

How we can help you

Step 1:  EPC Roadmap Service

Our EPC Roadmap Service considers your budget, planning restrictions and level of disruption to recommended improvements in order of cost efficiency and based on typical local installation prices.

Cost for service: £195 inc vat

 

Step 3: New EPC

Once the necessary improvements have been installed, we can produce a new EPC for you to ensure that you conform to the new Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards.
