Do landlords need a energy certificate for a property they rent?

Yes. It is a legal requirement that a landlord provides an up to date 'Energy Performance Certificate' once every 10 years. I hope this helps!

A landlord requires an Energy Performance Certificate to openly market the property for rent. If the property has not been marketed since the legislation came in (October 2008 if I recall correctly) then the landlord will not need to provide one. As stated above, certificates do expire every 10 years and will need to be renewed if the property is marketed again.

Yes an EPC is valid 10 years and should be made available to tenants and buyers before they sign for a property...
