EPC GUIDANCE

TO ENSURE A FAST TURNAROUND OF YOUR EPC REPORT PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION.

Access to all areas of the property is required including the loft.

Access to gas & electric meters wherever they are located.

Access to heating controls/heating systems, i.e. Boiler Programmers, Room Thermostats TRV’s.

Our energy assessment is unintrusive and relies on a visual inspection only. We therefore rely on documented evidence for everything that we cannot document ourselves on site.

 

Any insulation (walls/floors/lofts/flat roofs) can only be included if you can provide documented proof of the depth of insulation.

A completion certificate or date stamped plans are required to prove age for extensions.

An MCS certificate is required if you have had Solar PV panels fitted at your property.

Documentary evidence must be provided within 30 days of our site visit. If this evidence is not provided within this time - frame the EPC can only be lodged without the possible extra improvements to your EPC rating. After this 30-day period amendments can only be made if we make a revisit to the property at an additional revisit fee.

 

An EPC assessment is chargeable whether the EPC report is lodged on the register or not. The assessor has still made a site visit and completed data entry work in preparation for the EPC to be lodged. If you do not come back with further documented evidence, and do not agree for the EPC to be lodged, the fee still applies for the work carried out to that point.
