Not that I know much about this but one of my properties is a ground floor studio which I had built in 2005. The EPC needs renewing in Dec 22 and its was rated D61 with potential to be C75 which under the new rules would make it pass. I spoke to an electrician today whos working on the neighbours house and he said just change the light bulbs to LED low voltage and that should be enough. Surely it cant be that easy???? Other than that I could change the boiler which Im reluctant to do as its been so reliable since it was installed when the property was built

Sorry, what are you thinking you need to do?

I don't see that you need to do anything at all?

The year 2025 is mentioned in there, right? And 2028.

Anyway, LED bulbs is the way to go... also it's just common sense to do that anyway.

Im just thinking do it soon and get it out the way as there is only 12 months left on my current EPC.

I guess youre right no point worrying just yet. Did have LED bulbs in the place a few years ago but tenants just take them out complaining they were not bright enough

That doesn't make any sense.

Surely you've had at least a few tenants over the years who were not bright enough? :)
