An EPC is only required for a habitable unit if it is self contained.

Where individual rooms in a building are rented out and there are shared facilities (e.g.

kitchen and/or bathroom), an EPC is not required. This is because an EPC is only

required on the rental of a building or part of a building designed or altered to be used

separately. Renting a room does not meet the ‘part of a building’ definition.
