Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)
Following the General Election in 2010, Home Information Pack's (HIPs) have been abolished but Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) have not.
There is a duty on the seller or landlord to ensure that an EPC has been commissioned before marketing of the property commences where no such certificate is already available.
An EPC has been commissioned when a Domestic Energy Assessor has been instructed to prepare the EPC and the EPC has been paid for.
Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) were introduced to help improve the energy efficiency of buildings. The certificate provides 'A' to 'G' ratings for the building, with 'A' being the most energy efficient and 'G' being the least, with the average up to now being 'D'.
Accredited energy assessors produce EPCs alongside an associated report which suggests improvements to make a building more energy efficient.
Robert Oulsnam and Company are able to provide EPCs on all properties we are selling or renting usually within days of being instructed and all our EPC's come with a free detailed floor plan of your property.
Contact your local office for advice on EPC's and what our charges are for providing them.
