Energy Performance and Commercial Leases

Landlords of commercial property will be well aware of their obligation to provide an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) with a rating of E or better to a prospective new Tenant, prior to the grant of a Lease to them.

However, from April 2023, Landlords of commercial property can face fines up to a maximum of £150,000 if at any time during a commercial Lease term they are not able to produce a valid EPC showing an energy efficiency rating of E or higher
