EPCs are required by law when a property is being sold or rented. It tells you, in a diagrammatic form, the energy band into which your house falls.
EPCs are banded from A (energy efficiency very good and costs less than average to heat) to G (energy efficiency poor, costs more than average to heat).
As of 2008, vendors and landlords are now legally obliged to make the EPC certificate available at the time or purchase or rental. EPCs are valid for 10 years.
The EPC can only be produced by a Government Approved Accredited Assessor. Our Accredited Assessor will need to inspect the house and take measurements plus detail information such as the type of construction, heating system, insulation, lighting etc. Using this information, our assessor will calculated the energy rating of the house.
An EPC will provide a completely objective assessment of the energy rating of a property you are intending to sell, purchase or rent.
