Why do I need an Energy Performance Certificate?
As of 6th April 2012 an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) must be commissioned before marketing your property for sale or rent, whether it is residential or commercial.
All “reasonable efforts” must be made to ensure that an EPC is obtained within 7 days of marketing the property. (Where it has not been secured during that period, there is an absolute duty to obtain it within 21 days of the end of that period.)
An EPC assesses the energy performance of a property, grading it from ‘A’ to ‘G’ with A being the most energy efficient and G being the least. The E PC must be undertaken by a qualified Domestic Energy Assessor
The significance of the EPC will increase in the coming months as there are indications that it may be used as the basis for Council Tax discounts and Green grants. The more environmentally friendly a property becomes will dictate how attractive it is to buyers in the near future.
Similarly, if you own an unusual property or one of non-standard construction, our specialist assessors can deliver their expertise in these technically challenging areas.
