A new law affecting those that rent out property in Croatia will come into effect on 1 January 2016..

Those renting out accommodation will not be able to so anymore from 1 January 2016 without an energy certificate. According to HRT, obtaining an energy certificate for a property costs between 900 and 2,500 kuna (depending on size). Fines for not possessing one will range from 5 to 30,000 kuna.

An energy certificate gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A+ (most efficient) to G (least efficient). A property can not fail an inspection, with the least efficient rating given in the worst case scenarios, The rating shows how efficient the property is in terms of energy and can help long-term renters in assessing monthly utility costs.
