Domestic Energy Performance Certificate
Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are needed whenever a property is built, sold or rented. For the sale and rental of existing dwellings, and EPC can only be produced by an accredited Domestic Energy Assessor. The EPC will provide information about a property's energy usage and typical energy costs as well as offering some recommendations about how you could reduce energy use and save money.
The EPC gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and is valid for 10 years.
As of 1 April 2018 there is a requirement for any properties rented out in the private rented sector to have a minimum energy performance rating of E on an EPC. These regulations came into force initially for new lets or rentals and was extended to cover existing tenancies on 1 April 2020.
