The Law requires sellers to provide buyers with an Energy Performance Certificate. (EPC)
The EPC was introduce to help improve energy efficiency of homes and other buildings. It is required by law that any property which is built, sold or rented hold a valid EPC.
An EPC certificate contains Information on a property’s energy use and carbon dioxide emissions, and Also a recommendation report with suggestions to reduce energy use and carbon dioxide emissions.
The property will be given an energy efficient rating, something like yo use when you buy a large electrical appliance like a washing machine. These ratings go from A-G, with A being the more energy efficient.
It will give recommendations on how to improve the energy efficiency of your home, such as loft insulation or cavity wall insulation.
EPC’s are produced by accredited domestic energy assessor. They will need to visit the property to produce the certificate. The certificates are valid for 10 years. The costs are usually set by EPC assessors.
If you do require an EPC then speak to our conveyancing department, who can pass you the details of a recommended EPC supplier. Call us today on 0151 735 1000
