Energy Performance Certificate

An EPC stands for Energy Performance Certificate. EPC’s are legally required for any building that is to be put on the market for sale or for rental purposes

irrespective of whether you are selling/renting privately or using an Estate Agent. The EPC contains information about the energy efficiency of the property, carbon emissions and typical energy costs. The certificate will also include recommendations on methods by which you can improve your homes energy efficiency, which can save you money and help the environment.

Properties are rated on a scale of A-G where an A rating is the most energy efficient.

Im thinking of selling my property – will i need an EPC?

Yes, you will need to have one, or arranged for one to be prepared before we can market your property. Listed buildings are exempt from requiring an EPC.

How long is an EPC valid for?

An EPC is valid for up to 10 years. A property can be marketed immediately once you have commissioned an Energy Performance Certificate. If an existing EPC is used nearing the end of its legal life (for example 9 years and 11 months old) it will remain valid for as long as the building is continuously marketed. But if the property is temporarily taken off the market for more than 28 days, a new EPC will be required to replace it if its more than 10 years old when you resume marketing, A new EPC supersedes an older one.
