Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are needed whenever a property is built, sold or rented. The person selling or letting a property must produce a valid EPC as soon as possible before a property is marketed. Should you need an EPC on your property, you must appoint an accredited energy assessor to carry out the assessment and produce the certificate.
What does an EPC contain?
An EPC is a legally valid document that contains information about a property’s energy use and typical energy costs with recommendations about how to reduce energy use and save money. An EPC gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and is valid for 10 years.
