Since 2010, Energy Performance Certificates have become mandatory on all properties ‘For Sale’ and ‘To Let’ in England and Wales, which needs to be available on request to any prospective purchaser or tenant.
Proctors can assist you with this and are able to refer you to a Qualified Energy Assessor. We can arrange this for you.
An EPC provides information about your property’s energy use and typical costs as well as recommendations about reducing energy usage and saving money. They are valid for 10 years.
If you are selling or renting your home, it is a legal requirement to have an EPC certificate.
An EPC contains:
- Information about a property’s energy use and typical energy cost
- Recommendations about how to reduce energy use and save money
An EPC gives a property an energy efficient rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and it is valid for 10 years. If you’re selling or renting out your home, you’ll need to find an accredited assessor: They’ll assess your property to produce the certificate. If you don’t get an EPC when you need one, you can be fined.
