It's essential for anyone buying or renting central London property to investigate its energy efficiency. Whenever possible, Dexters' property listings include an EPC rating to help you on your way.
Any tenanted property must soon have a minimum Energy Performance Rating of E as measured on its Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). From April 2018 we will not be able to grant a new tenancy or renew an existing tenancy if the energy efficiency of a property is graded F or G. We have very few properties affected by this legislation and are working with any landlords needing help.
As energy costs increase, tenants are starting to take more notice of a property’s running costs, and heating and lighting are inevitably the main focus. In our efforts to maintain properties, energy efficiency is just one of the many areas that we are happy to look at for landlords in maintaining and improving their property. If you are a Dexters landlord and we can help in any way, then please contact your Property Manager or your local office.
Contact Dexters for more information about energy efficient properties for sale or rent in London.
The beautiful, listed facades of the Port of London Authority and the Central Cold Store, which once held animal carcasses from Smithfield market opposite, stand as a reminder of London’s industrial and commercial past. But behind these brick walls in the heart of London is a hidden power station that could resolve how the UK heats, cools and powers business of the future. The station, Citigen, has been owned and run by E.ON since 2002 but has been generating electricity since 1993, producing enough power for 11,300 homes and capturing the byproduct heat to send it off to buildings in the City of London via a network of tunnels. It also provides chilled water, which is used for cooling in several properties’ air conditioning systems.
