    Marketing advice - commercial EPCs

    Hi everyone,

    My dad specialises in EPCs for commercial properties and is currently doing the air conditioning energy assessment qualification. He is based in SE england and also covers London and I have said I would help him out with some marketing.

    Could anyone please let me know if there are any specialist publications / websites which would be useful places to advertise?

    Not sure if this is the kind of question you can help with as I know the forum focuses more on operational issues but any advice would be much appreciated as I am very new to this!!

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Is he on the appropriate '' page? Like this one, for example:

    People wanting a tradesperson or business type in an area just type it in and everyone is listed.

      Thanks for the advice - he isnt in there at the moment but I have had a look and looks like I can get a standard ad for free so will get on the case!!

      Thanks again!

        At £70 per week, it's £31 per week cheaper than the house next door which is at least a D on the EPC and is very nicely done out. Social housing is £78 to £84 per week but they all have central heating, gas boiler with instant hot water etc whereas we do not.

        The original LL inherited...

        What will happen if assured tenants are still paying a landlord rent for a house with an EPC rated as an F on 1 April 2020? As assured tenants can't be evicted using a Section 21 order and the landlord can't legally rent out a sub-standard house after 1 April is the landlord prevented from evicting...

        You are right to be aggrieved. It is a very blunt tool and what is more different assessors mark harder than others. A big problem is that cost of energy is used as well as efficiency, hence electric and LPG is heavily marked down; oil heating is much filthier in terms of the environment but ironically...

        by Mrs Dingle
        Just had my EPC's done and they say the ground floors are solid with no insulation recommending floor insulation at a cost of £4,000 to £6,000.. They were built in 1990 with block and beam suspended floors with 25mm polystyrene on top then membrane then 18mm chipboard. So definately not solid. They...

        Ideal logic+, its almost like this boiler was made for the rental market. If your not bothered by servicing and keeping the warranty alive then the ideal esprit eco2 is virtually the same boiler just with a 5yr warranty instead of 7/10.

        Great hot water flow and highly rated by installers....

      • Thoughts on a new boiler
        by jpkeates
        Property has a gas boiler and it's about 25 years old and starting to fail from time to time (and make some deeply insettling noises).

        Had it checked by a fitter I trust and he tells me it needs replacing. So fair enough, have to bite the bullet.

        Before he quotes for the replacement,...

        This is quite a fascinating case and Ive ruminated at length on what to suggest. I think your best line to take is as seems to be the case that the tenancy as an assured tenancy which gives you security of tenure subject to paying the rent agreed or determined for the tenancy. There is a right to apply...

        That's an interesting question - how much is a house worth in rent when it's banned from being let at all on 1 April? How do I go about gathering evidence of what the rent should be? Bear in mind the rent has not gone up since 2010, there's no central heating, the DG is blown, the kitchen is well...the...

        If you involve the local authority and they serve improvement notices, it sounds as though they'd be serious enough to close the door to section 21 (at least until 6 months after they were satisfied).
        And the landlord doesn't seem to know what they're doing, so there's also the issue of getting...

        Yeah it doesn't seem at all simple and we can't afford to lose a court case.

        Yes you are right on that point. I did recently take a photo of the fungus growing on the living room side of our front door lol (both doors are rotted) and the over 30 year old worktops that really...
