QUIDOS Landlords Ignore Energy Performance Legislation

Landlords ignore energy performance legislation
• Survey highlights compliance rates of just 22% with recent commercial energy legislation
• Landlords show reluctance to commission surveys amidst depressed market conditions
• Trading standards officers to use report to target non-compliance

SOUTH WEST ‘EPC’ COMPLIANCE REPORT PUBLISHED
Quidos Limited, experts in property energy management and compliance have published the results of an autumn study into energy efficiency compliance across several South West regions, conducted with assistance from local Trading Standards officers.

The report shows that Landlord compliance with the 1-year-old Energy Performance Certificate legislation for commercial property (currently for sale or let) was still very low, with only 22% of commercial property appearing to carry a valid energy certificate.

Areas surveyed with their compliance ratings:
Area        Sample size       With EPC       No EPC          Not found
Bristol      200                   44   (22%)     103 (52%)     53    (26%)
BANES     228                   61   (26%)     54   (23%)     113  (49%)
Dorset     55                     10   (18%)     29   (52%)     16    (30%)
Cornwall  125                   22   (18%)     73   (58%)     30     (24%)
Wiltshire  115                   20   (17%)     39   (34%)     56     (49%)
              723                   157 (22%)    298   (41%)     268   (37%)

Although these results must be qualified by the methodology used (explained below), they have surprised many industry professionals who had considered compliance to be over 80%. Whilst Quidos have stressed that the figures are at best illustrative and focussed only on the South West, they do highlight a lack of industry compliance which is likely to be repeated across the UK.

Speaking after publication, Quidos Operations Director Nick Branch spoke in favour of moves to improve awareness of energy efficiency; “These certificates provide a valuable asset rating of the energy performance of buildings. This data can and is being used by forward thinking landlords to improve the energy efficiency, and value of their property portfolio. With low cost loans available from the Carbon Trust, these energy saving improvements can be capital neutral in the short term and revenue generating in the longer term.”

Trading Standards officials across the region are now taking an active interest in the findings of the report, and have requested monthly updates to monitor progress. With EPC prices at an all time low, Landlords are now advised to have their available property surveyed to avoid on-the-spot fines of up to £5000.
