We own a single property which is available for holiday lets throughout the year. Can you explain why I need an energy performance certificate? Do you think my guests are really interested? Do they not just want to enjoy their holiday? This is just an additional expense and regulation placed upon property owners for no additional benefit to anyone other than the contractor carrying out an inspection and is completely needless, unlike fire assessments and landlord’s gas certificates. I can see that many owners, such as ourselves will decide to discontinue providing holiday accommodation if the burden from regulations becomes, as it seems, ridiculous.

Why is this idea important?

This is just another needless regulation

  1. The EPC only has to be done once every 10 years, so is not much of an expense – £10 or less a year. And if you are fortunate enough to have the capital to have a holiday home, then you can certainly afford that. And the EPC was introduced to try and make homes more energy efficient, so nothing wrong with that. Unfortunately there are a large number of rogue landlords as well as good ones, another reason why such legislation is necessary.
