Compliance rate for Commercial EPCs in Lancs only 33%

Over the last year we have researched EPC compliance for non-domestic buildings—the sector with the lowest compliance rates.

In September we investigated 1171 properties in Lancashire that have been on the market for more than 6 months and are larger than 50 sqm.

Our research showed that 780 properties did not have an EPC, giving an overall compliance figure of only 33%—the lowest since December 2009.

By publishing our findings, we hope we will raise awareness of the EPC requirement and increase compliance rates.
