Why do I need a Energy Performance Certificate?
If you are renting or selling your property as of the 4th of January 2009 you will require an energy performance certificate also known as an EPC. This is required before marketing of your property can commence. The EPC lasts 10 years and is carried out by one of our accredited energy assessors. This certificate is fully compliant and can be used with any estate agent.
• Average Turnaround Time: 24-72 Hours
• Appointment Duration: 30-60 Minutes
• Certificate Issued within: 24 Hours
Our surveyors are fully qualified and hold all of the relevant qualifications to carry out the energy performance certificate, so you can rest assured that the service you receive will be of the highest level. The report takes an average of 40 minutes to complete and the surveyor will need access to all rooms in the property.
The report gives your property a rating between A and G. “A” Rated properties have the lowest running costs and “G” the highest. The calculation is made using the characteristics of the home which include, but are not limited to: - the age of property, heating system, heating controls, insulation, glazing and lighting.
Once the calculation is made you will receive an 8 page report that will outline your score and give recommendations on how your rating can be improved. It is advised to act on the recommendations but you are under no legal obligation to do so.
