A Residential Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) measures the energy efficiency of a property using a rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient). The EPC also contains typical energy costs and recommendations about how to reduce energy use and save money.
If you are considering selling or letting your property then you need to order an EPC prior to marketing your property and make it available to any interested tenant at the earliest opportunity.
It it now unlawful to grant or renew a tenancy or lease if you have an EPC rating of an F or G.
There are, however, some exemptions which apply including:
Robinson & Hall can organise an EPC on your behalf when you use us to let your property. If your EPC is an F or G then we are able to recommend changes and project manage applicable works to increase your EPC rating to avoid any void periods. Please contact us to arrange an appointment.
