Energy Performance Certificates
If you are marketing a property "for sale" or "to let" you must have a valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). Failure to do so can result in a fine.
What is an EPC?
This gives a rating of the energy efficiency of the property, together with its potential. It gives advice on which measures can be carried out to improve the energy efficiency together with estimates of the savings which could be achieved and the costs of the works.
A purchaser may wish to factor the cost of any improvements to the offer they are prepared to make. A vendor may want to carry out improvements in advance of marketing the property to make it more attractive.
How is it produced?
An EPC can only be produced by an accredited assessor, such as ourselves. It involves a visit to your property where information is gathered which is then entered into an accredited computer program which produces the report. The inspection usually takes between 30 minutes and 1 hour. Once produced the report is valid for 10 years.
