Do I need an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)?
It has been a legal requirement, since 1 October 2008, for all landlords to have a valid EPC for their property before it can be let.
What is an EPC?
An EPC assesses the energy performance of a property, from “A” representing the most energy efficient property to “G” representing the least energy efficient property. It must be carried out by a qualified Domestic Energy Assessor and will also show a building’s environmental impact by indicating its carbon dioxide emissions.
How long is an EPC valid for?
A valid EPC will last for 10 years and can be used for multiple tenancies within that period.
