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.

How do I order an EPC?

Ashmore Residential is able to arrange for an EPC to be carried out on your behalf in order to avoid any delays letting your property.

  • The cost of an EPC will be £80 (including VAT)
  • Ashmore Residential will keep a digital copy of the EPC in case it is ever misplaced
