    You are going to need a valid EPC before you can sell or sign a new AST again.
    EPC is valid for 10 years.
    Answer the Qs posed.

    Section 21 aside, you did need to give a valid EPC if the tenancy's on or after 9 January 2013. However, the enforcement authority for the fine is the council's trading standard, so if the council had told you not to bother....

    Sounds like council stitched you up deliberately.

    Most of the rent is paid by housing benefit by the council straight ti me . The remainder is paid by the tenant. The tenant signed an initial 6 month contract with me and since then it has just been rolling on

    Epc and section21

    I have been renting to a tenant for 5 years or so through the council. It was the council who approached me to let the property to someone on their homeless list. On commencement the council told me an epc would not be necessary. Do I need one now to serve a section 21

    I agree with one of the other posts, Company A should have sorted the whole job, it sounds like a 10 mins job with maybe a collar for the pipework being tightened up and then some basthroom sealant ...........you are right.......... just under a ' monkey'' (Arthur Daley speak) for what is a simple pipe...

    We have a London flat managed by an agent (full management service).

    My husband and I were abroad, and got a call from the council saying the property was leaking sewage into the flat below. We contacted our agent immediately who sent someone around the same day (Company A).

    What does your agreement (or terms & conditions sent) with this say about such queries, please? I'd start there first & then probably their complaints process (if they have one)

    Is this the lettings agent on the block (of flats) management agent please?

    I humbly note...

    The pipework was found to be sound. I think Company A were there as an emergency "see if it's sewage and shut off the water if necessary". They said it was a pipework problem and a sealant problem. Company B carried out a full audit on the pipes and found it was only a sealant problem....

    The letting agent engaged all of them. We gave them an instruction to fix whatever the problem was after the notification from the council there was a problem - we pay for a full management service.

    I doubt the agency will give us money back because they've paid it out directly to the contractor,...
