The minimum standard energy efficiency regulations provide a limited number of temporary exemptions for privately rented properties with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of F or G, where it is not technically advisable or financially feasible to bring those properties up to an EPC E rating. The majority of exemptions available under these regulations are valid for a period of five years, effective from their date of registration.
