Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)

Since the 1st October 2008, all rental properties must have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) and following recent additional changes in legislation, an EPC must now be given to tenants before the start of a tenancy.

The EPC will contain information about a property’s energy use and typical energy costs along with recommendations of how to reduce energy use and save money. This should be carried out by a fully qualified, accredited Domestic Energy Assessor.
