Who Requires An Energy Performance Certificate?
If you own a property in England or Wales and want to sell or rent it, as of 21st May 2010 you need an Energy Performance Certificate.
When Selling Your Property
The government passed a legislation that states anyone wishing to sell their property must have ordered or possess an EPC when the property goes on sale. Your estate agent is required to upload this EPC within 28 days of the sale’s commencement date.
When Renting Your Property
If you wish to rent or lease your property you, as the landlord, must ensure that an EPC is available for any potential tenant to look at.
On Construction or “New Build” EPC
This is a slightly different form as the person carrying out the works must provide the EPC to complete the Building Regulations. The assessment carried out does not necessitate a visit, as the information is gathered from the architect’s plans. A set fee of £75.00 + VAT is payable for the On Construction Energy Performance Certificate.
