  • EPC for property on letting market before 1 October?

    Hi all,

    Sorry of this has been asked before, but I would just like to clarify something about the EPC's that come into force on Wednesday.

    Are EPC's only required for properties put on the market on or after 1st of October, or is it any property that is on the market on 1st October (i.e. those put on market before Oct 1st)?

    Any guidance greatly appreciated!

    What are people paying for epc's?

    I've just arranged for 5 two bed properties to be done @ £36 each including vat.
    The guy is a sole operator and has already said that he'll be putting prices up to around £45 each simply because tenants are so difficult to co-ordinate for visits.
    I rather suspect that at the end of the day averages are going to settle around £50 inc.

    Epc!

    I arrange for the EPC to take place last Sunday at my properties, the assessor arrived early and was very meticulous. I was able to get a discount, and would recommend him to any one who is interested in Norfolk.

    Presumably you're talking about letting rather than selling, right?

    AIUI the rule applies to tenancies starting on or after 1 October.
    Excellent. Many thanks.

    Hi everyone,

    I’d like a bit of advice about damp. The house is an old (1800’s) end terraced house.

    My tenant told me this time last year that she was experiencing mould patches on the walls upstairs. I had a look and thought it to be caused by poor ventilation etc and...

    You're wrong, I can see who has viewed a thread and on a per-thread basis the number of views varies very little between forums. Always post in the appropriate forum otherwise you might not get the best answers, and you waste my time....

    Hi all,
    sorry this is a continuation from my last post that’s been moved to epc’s/repairs and I don’t think many will read so have done a new thread.

    Damp specialist has visited the property today and confirmed condensation is causing the mould.
    recommendations are the...

    One small step - thank you for the advice. Just an update, I’ve been round in heavy rain to observe the outside and can’t see any issues with rendering etc. The roof has been check and is ok. This morning I’ve had a damp specialist out. It was a feee visit to diagnose the problem. They have said...

    Unfortunately, some tenants do not understand how condensation is formed and how they are creating it. They see wet walls and automatically assume it is water coming in from outside. Obviously, in some cases it is a failing in the building structure or a simple fix like a blocked or faulty gutter....

    Those photos don't look like a condensation problem.
    I'd expect condensation on large flat surfaces rather than in the corners.

    Because you tried that last year and its back again! Unfortunately there is no one 'expert' who can help - they only deal with their own area of specialisation. You need to look at the whole picture yourself and take a view.

    I had damp issues in many Victorian terraced houses and each case...

    If there is no such thing as rising damp, damp proof courses are a con, and the long multithread on the building without one is based on a false premise.

    A very long time ago, I was in a seaside basement flat where a spare room had serious mould problems, because it was below ground and...
