Energy Performance Certificates
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a legal requirement for any property being built, sold or rented. As of 1st April 2020 all residential rented property required to have an EPC will be required to have a rating of E or above. The EPC must be in place by 1st April and is not dependent on a new lease being granted. We are able to advise on property amendments required to bring the property up to a level E to ensure your property is compliant with regulations.
The certificate is valid for 10 years and contains information about the property's energy use and energy costs. It also gives advice on how to reduce energy consumption and therefore reduce energy costs.
An EPC is provided by us after a visit to your property, during which we make note of elements such as your heating system and insulation in the walls, roof & floor.
Your property will be giving an energy efficiency rating between Band A and Band G, with Band A being the most efficient and G being the least.
The certificate also contains your property's environmental impact rating, and suggestions to improve the overall energy efficiency banding.
We have been carrying out EPC's since their release on 1st August 2007.
