It is now a legal requirement that all transactions, including sale or rent of a property, must provide an assessment of the energy efficiency of the property in the form of an energy performance certificate or EPC, which must be less than ten years old.
Should a building be extended or significantly altered from an energy perspective, a new EPC must be undertaken prior to making a subsequent property transaction. EPCs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions with potential figures that the property could achieve.
Potential energy figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions would be if energy saving measures were put in place. EPCs also provide a detailed recommendation report showing what measures can be taken to reduce the amount of energy used and carbon dioxide emissions produced.
Suggested improvements like fitting loft insulation
Possible cost savings per year if the improvements are made
How the recommendations would change the energy and carbon emission rating of the property
It is not compulsory to undertake the recommendations made in the report. But, our energy assessors are highly experienced and their recommendations highly practical. Hence, if the recommended improvements are implemented, your property can become more energy efficient which in turn can enhance its appeal for sale or rent. Call today for a visit from us.
