An energy performance certificate is needed whenever a property is built, sold or rented. The EPC provides analysis and detail on the property's energy efficiency and provides suggestions and estimated costs on how best to improve the energy efficiency of the property. Once you have your certificate you will have a good idea of the current cost for the utilities and the potential savings you could earn should you implement the suggested changes (if any). Finally, the report displays a rating from A-G (A being very energy efficient, G otherwise) to provide a clear and simple conclusion on the energy efficiency of the property. If an EPC is not made available upon request, penalties may apply to the seller/builder/landlord.
Buildings that do not need an EPC include:
places of worship, temporary buildings that will be used for less than 2 years, stand-alone buildings with total useful floor space of less than 50 square metres, industrial sites, workshops and non-residential agricultural buildings that don’t use a lot of energy, some buildings that are due to be demolished, holiday accommodation that’s rented out for less than 4 months a year or is let under a licence to occupy, listed buildings, residential buildings intended to be used less than 4 months a year.
