This legislation can have significant implications for landlords and for occupiers who wish to assign or sublet space in their tenanted property and will :

 

  • Affect the maketability of some properties that will be impossible to market unless they are upgraded

 

  • Valuations of properties can be affected resulting in a reduced valuation.

 

  • Implications for dilapidations could be affected, particlarly commercial property

 

  • Be impossible to create a new lease or tenancy until the property has been upgraded.

 

Given the risk property owners and occupiers need to have a clear understanding of the  energy efficiency of their property and undertake any relevant upgrades as soon as possible.
