Hi, the Bill info is here https://bills.parliament.uk/bills/3036/stages It used to say second reading was happening tomorrow (22/10/21), now it says "to be announced" or something... Yes the measures are illogical, and the EPC's are highly subjective. I have a solid walled Victorian property that I've managed to have reassessed as a C despite previous certs stating that its maximum potential was only a D!!
It seems the second reading of this bill, that would impose the minimum EPC grade C requirements on private rentals, has been postponed indefinitely. Maybe because the "sponsor" was David Amess. Will they use this as an excuse to delay it, and water it down?
