Energy Performance Certificates

A mandatory requirement when a home is offered for sale or rent.

The Energy Performance Certificate also known as EPC is designed to give purchasers and tenants a clear picture of the property’s energy efficiency and level of carbon emissions. The EPC should be available to view within 7 days of marketing the property. There’s no pass or fail, instead the property is assessed on a scale of A to G with A having the lowest bills and CO2 emissions.

The EPC also recommends improvements such as loft insulation to reduce energy use and gives examples of potential cost savings. The EPC can be carried out by our own in house Energy Assessor.
