Energy Performance Certificate ServicesEnergy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are now required with effect from 30th June 2008 for all re-sale residential, commercial and rental properties after 30th December 2008.
What is an Energy Performance Certificate?
This document is valid for 10 years and shows how energy efficient your property is. It grades the property's energy efficiency from A to G, with A being the highest rating.
If you have a brand new home it's likely to have a high rating. If you have an older property it's likely to be around D or E.
The energy performance certificate also lists ways to improve the rating - such as installing double glazing or loft or wall insulation.
The theory is, the better the rating your property gets, the more attractive it should be to a buyer/tenant as it indicates lower energy bills.
Energy Performance Certificates can be arranged from our qualified and accredited Energy Assessor who will call at your home at your convenience. These certificates are now a mandatory requirement before your property can be marketed.
