Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

NEW leg­is­la­tion on the en­ergy ef­fi­ciency of build­ings will have a sig­nif­i­cant ef­fect on prop­erty val­ues leav­ing land­lords ex­posed to po­ten­tially un­let­table premises, ac­cord­ing to ex­perts at prop­erty con­sul­tancy Lam­bert Smith Hamp­ton (LSH).

The En­ergy Act 2011 will make it un­law­ful to let build­ings with F and G rated en­ergy per­for­mance cer­tifi­cates af­ter April 2018.

LSH re­gional di­rec­tor Dar­ren Hughes said the de­gree of risk at­tached to F and G rated prop­er­ties is high.

Proac­tive in­vestors and land­lords should be start­ing to iden­tify which of their prop­er­ties are at risk of fall­ing foul of this new leg­is­la­tion and putting a plan in place to im­prove the fu­ture en­vi­ron­men­tal per­for­mance.”
