A council says it’s going to contact local landlords to remind them of legal restrictions concerning energy efficiency.
Caerphilly council says it’s telling landlords that since April 2020 it is unlawful to let or continue to let a domestic property with an Energy Performance Certificate rating below E.
Landlords letting a property with a current EPC rating of F or G must act immediately to comply with Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards regulations.
Those landlords found to be letting properties with an EPC rating of F or G and in breach of the MEES regulation can be fined up to £5,000.
Over the coming weeks the council says it will be “engaging and supporting landlords” to ensure they make these important energy efficiency changes to their properties to achieve the required minimum standards.
