Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are needed whenever a property is:

  • built
  • sold
  • rented

You must order an EPC for potential buyers and tenants before you market your property to sell or rent.

In Scotland, you must display the EPC somewhere in the property, for example in the meter cupboard or next to the boiler.

An EPC contains:

  • information about a property’s energy use and typical energy costs
  • recommendations about how to reduce energy use and save money

An EPC gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and is valid for 10 years.

You can be fined if you do not get an EPC when you need one.

The person selling the house, the landlord or the letting agent must show you the EPC if you’re buying or renting.

Buildings that do not need an EPC

These include:

  • places of worship
  • temporary buildings that will be used for less than 2 years
  • stand-alone buildings with total useful floor space of less than 50 square metres
  • industrial sites, workshops and non-residential agricultural buildings that do not use a lot of energy
  • some buildings that are due to be demolished
  • holiday accommodation that’s rented out for less than 4 months a year or is let under a licence to occupy
  • listed buildings – you should get advice from your local authority conservation officer if the work would alter the building’s character
  • residential buildings intended to be used less than 4 months a year

Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards Landlord Specific Exemptions

The Domestic Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) Regulations set a minimum energy efficiency level for domestic private rented properties.

The Regulations apply to all domestic private rented properties that are:

  • let on specific types of tenancy agreement

  • legally required to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)

    There are a number of situations where landlords may be able to claim exemptions from the regulations:

  • All relevant improvements made exemption

  • High cost exemption

  • Wall insulation exemption

  • Third party consent exemption

  • Property devaluation exemption

  • Temporary exemption due to recently becoming a landlord

    Exemptions must be registered on the central PRS Exemptions Register.



I have leased properties through Argyle/PSL for  several years. Over this time they have fine tuned their organisation to provide a very  efficient service. 100% reliable as far as the income stream is  concerned, always available at the end of the phone and constantly monitoring and fixing tenant’s problems  in the background so as to minimise landlord inconvenience.”

I felt that I needed to leave this review because I have been with PSL Leasing for many years and hand on heart I can say that the service is absolutely brilliant and worry free. Everyone that I have had contact with have been courteous and very helpful so I would definitely recommend this company.

“I have been leasing properties to Argyle Housing and PSL Leasing Ltd at least since 2003 or 2004. The process of leasing a property to PSL Leasing is straight forward and any landlord will find it easy.  

As a landlord I find leasing my properties to PSL gives me peace of mind because the rents are pretty much guaranteed. Also the support of a large housing company like PSL behind me gives me the confidence that my properties are managed & looked after professionally. 
With regards to response to tenants, running repairs and the day to day management of my properties, my experience to date with PSL has been very positive. The staff are very helpful, very knowledgeable and efficient. They always go the extra mile especially when there are repairs & maintenance to deal with. 
I would encourage landlords to consider leasing their properties to PSL if the peace of mind that comes with the support of large housing company and pretty much guaranteed rent is what they are looking for..”
