Energy Performance Certificates

What You Need To Know About EPC'S

Energy Performace Certificates


Energy Performance Certificates are needed whenever a property is:-

-    Built
-    Sold
-    Rented


If you’re selling or renting your home, you must order an EPC for potential buyers and tenants before you market your property.

In Scotland, you must display the EPC somewhere in the property - eg in the meter cupboard or next to the boiler.

An EPC contains:

-   Information about a property’s energy use and typical energy costs
-   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 it is valid for 10 years.
 

How to get an EPC

If you’re selling or renting out your home, you’ll need to find an accredited assessor:


At Bakewell & Horner we have fully qualified EPC assessors available to provide an EPC.

If you’re buying or renting then the person selling the house, the landlord or the letting agent must show you the EPC.
