Current Statistics ►

From 1st April, all new rental leases and renewals of tenancies will be required to have an energy performance rating of at least E on an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). For existing tenancies, the regulations come into force on 1st April 2020.

We wondered how much tenants are prepared to pay for energy efficiency. Properties across England and Wales let in 2017 with an energy performance rating of E achieved 3.1% more per square foot than properties let with an F or G rating. On an 800 square foot property, this equates to an average of £360 per year.

The majority of landlords are well prepared, but we calculate that around 7% of properties let in 2017 still need to be brought up to the standard required. Best prepared are London landlords where just 4.9% of properties let last year were lower than an E rating, while in the South West more than 10% of properties did not meet the standard.

At the top of the scale, properties with an A or B rating achieved, on average, 31% more per square foot than F and G rated properties in 2017. On an 800 square foot property, this equates to an average premium of £3,600 per year.

Gallery The Guild of Professional Estate Agents 15th June 2016

We all think that we have the Best Dad for hundreds of different reasons, from picking us up in Dad's Taxi at silly o'clock in the morning, to standing in the rain cheering us on when we're trying our hardest to get that elusive equaliser. It’s safe to say that our dads will always be there for us just when we need them. With Father's Day fast approaching, now is our chance to make sure they know how much we love and appreciate them and so, we'd like to wish our Great British Dads a Very Happy Father's Day on Sunday 19th June 2016.
