Scrapping EPC petition launched

A Petition to scrap Energy Performance Certificates has been put up on the Parliament Petitions website.

EPC's are the only surviving part of the Home Information Pack ( remember those folders of tree felling nonsensical beauracracy ) . 

All part of an EU diktat, European Union Directive 2002/91/EC, so post-brexit we won't have to keep them.

The question is do we think their something worthwhile?

Are they useful to tenants, buyers and not to forget the environment.

Personally I think they've helped encourage homeowners/landlords insulate  the UK's draughty old housing stock.

If you don't agree,, you can put your name down on the -

The farce was exemplified for me when the EPC inspector for my rental property (a £50 fee which is inevitably passed straight on to tenants as increased rent) drove in a 650 mle loop to carry out the inspection.
