It’s important for landlords in Bristol to appreciate the impact of last year’s Energy Act, and to appreciate how their rental property values in Bristol could be affected if they don’t take action before the Act legally requires them to.

Our response is speedy – we’re currently undertaking a full review of all our letting-only portfolio of properties in Bristol, to establish which properties are currently an F or G rating for energy efficiency.
It’s also worth considering that to consistently rent out a property in Bristol, appliances will need to be energy efficient, and with a regard to EPC ratings, remember A-E is good, whilst F-G appliances may need replacing, including insulation improved and windows checked.
Other considerations are the overall efficiency of the heating in a rented property, including measures such as wall cavity insulation.
