Letter to Residential Tenant Requesting Access for Energy Assessment


This Letter to residential tenant requesting access for energy assessment is for use by a  landlord whose tenanted property requires an EPC to establish that it meets the Minimum Energy Efficiency rating of at least E. The government's proposals that all residential lets achieve an EPC rating of C or above by 1 April 2028 were scrapped in September 2023.  This letter can be used where landlords wish to continue upgrading their properties. This letter should be printed on the landlord’s headed paper and sent to the tenant.

Most tenancy agreements allow the landlord or their agent to enter the property for the purposes of inspecting the property but not for carrying out an EPC assessment.   The tenant could reject the request even though there are potential energy saving benefits to them for no additional expense.  Landlords and agents should ensure that they comply with the relevant terms of the tenancy agreement when arranging viewings, not least by providing sufficient notice.

This letter confirms the name of the agent and the date and time when they will be visiting the property. The tenant is asked to sign a copy of the letter and return it to the landlord to confirm their acceptance of the arrangements. 

Optional phrases/clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.

This letter is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
