When you are selling or renting your property, the seller or landlord must provide the EPC.
WHO REQUIRES AN EPC?
Since 21st May 2010, if you decide to place your property on the market for sale or rent in the UK you will need to an EPC completed by a Qualified Accredited Energy Assessor and lodged onto a central register. This includes both residential and commercial properties. Since April 2018 it is also a legal requirement for the EPC rating to be a minimum of an 'E' rating in order for that property to be let to a tenant. This is part of the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES).
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR OBTAINING AN EPC?
When you are selling or renting your property, the seller or landlord must provide the EPC. The certificate should be given to the prospective buyer or tenant prior to entering into a sale or lease agreement.
The survey is designed to be a non-invasive visual inspection and all information is to be gathered whilst on site if possible. If there are any measures that cannot be seen i.e. cavity wall insulation, we will require the associated documentation to include this within our certificate.
