An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), is essentially a document that outlines how energy efficient your property is. Back in April 2018 the minimum energy efficiency standards (MEES) came into effect which said that all tenancy renewals, or newly rented property must have a minimum energy performance rating of an ‘E’. From 1st April 2020 the regulations extend to cover existing residential tenancies, which means that under the new legislations, rented properties with a rating of an F or a G cannot be rented out.

It’s no surprise that landlords often struggle to stay compliant when lettings regulations are constantly changing. In the past decade alone, we have had numerous, quite major pieces of legislation that have come into force, which puts more responsibility on the landlord. If you find it hard to keep on top of all the legislation changes, we have put together a list of a few of the vital things every law-abiding landlord should be doing.


There is no doubt that the property market today is a completely different landscape to what it was 10 years ago following the financial crash of 2008 and the Brexit vote in 2016. As we head into a new decade, we look back on the past 10 years and see how the sector has evolved, and how past performance may be informing the future.
