Landlords in Scotland have been urged to make sure they are aware of the new rules surrounding Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs).

According to the National Landlords Association (NLA), the government is not doing enough to make sure rental property owners are familiar with all the details.

The warning comes less than two months ahead of the introduction of EPCs in Scotland, which require landlords to give details of the environmental impact of their properties.

Jim Park, chairman of the Scottish branch of the NLA, said the government's failure to give details on the scheme is "disappointing".

He commented: "A significant number of landlords will be blissfully unaware of the risks of not complying with the new rules."

Mr Park added that if landlords are found to be breaking the law, even unknowingly, they could be fined as much as £5,000.

The warning comes after British Eco Energy stated that homeowners could save lots of money on bills if they make their properties more energy efficient.
