Legally, in England & Wales, you need to be able to show tenants a valid EPC if you’re advertising property to let.
Really, the EPC should be in the advert. The best practice is always the put the valid EPC in the advert and this is already law in Scotland.
That’s the best thing for the tenant and the landlord, and the strictest interpretation of the guidance. OpenRent can’t do this for you, since we don’t have access to every landlords person documents – just like how we can’t upload your property photos for you. But you can upload it in a few seconds by adding it as an image to your OpenRent advert’s photos.
If you don’t have an EPC, then you can order one through our site, so we ensure that all landlords able to meet EPC legal obligations.
As you know, landlords need to have a gas safety check performed every 12 months. You can order this on OpenRent, too. Serving it the tenant is not something we currently do, but all the law requires is that it is sent to them.
We make this easy by providing a digital report than you can simply forward to the tenant when the report is completed.
