Energy Performance Certificates

Advice on the EPC legislation, and what it means for you, the seller.

What is an EPC?

Buildings are responsable for nearly 40% of the UK's total energy consumption. This has led to a requirement for buildings to be made more energy efficient.

The European Directive (EPBD) states that all buildings are required to have an EPC before they are marketed for sale or rent.

The EPC should be shown, on request, to any prospective purchaser or tenant.

Energy Performance Certificates tell you how energy efficient a home is on a scale of A - G.

How is an EPC Calculated?

For existing properties* an inspection survey is required to record the data required for the Government approved Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) software.

There are a range of elements inspected and details recorded, including age, type and size of property, insulation levels, heating systems, glazing type, LELs etc.

*NOTE Dwellings under construction, or not yet started, have the EPC calculated from the approved Building Control plans.

The Penalties

The responsibility for providing an EPC lies with the vendor, landlord, or developer of the property.

Failure to produce an EPC can result in a fine of up to £200 for each and every breach of the legislation.

The Certificate

We will arrange to forward a hard copy of the EPC to you, together with an email version if required.

It will contain the notice of your home's efficiency rating and suggestions for improvement.

Our Role

We are qualified to carry out this work on your behalf, as we have a Government Approved Domestic Energy Assessor.

To arrange an EPC survey, or to discuss the requirements further, please contact us.
