EPC regulation changes



As you all know, the EPC regulation changes have been effective since 9th January. The new requirement is to include the EPC rating or the graph element if there is adequate space in any “advertisements in the commercial media”. Exempted from this new regulation are listed buildings and scheduled ancient monuments. If you are unsure on the status of one of the properties you are going to value or instruct, you can search for the property on the English Heritage website, where all listed buildings are registered.
