Get Reliable and Quality EPC Services
Energy performance certificates are legally required on sale or rent of a property. Whether you are building, renting out or selling a property, the EPC must be present and given to the tenant or buyer. The certificate gives a measure of how much a building consumes in energy. It also comes with a Recommendation Report on how to improve those numbers. A certified energy will conduct the evaluation and award the certificate.
There are few exceptions. However one of the more common ones might be where there is a workshop with just a toilet and no office. It would be the office that triggers the EPC requirement. Other exceptions:
- Listed or officially protected and the minimum energy performance requirements would unacceptably alter it.
- A temporary building only going to be used for 2 years or less.
- Used as a place of worship or for other religious activities.
- An industrial site, workshop or non-residential agricultural building that doesn’t use much energy. For instance a vegetable store.
- A detached building with a total floor space under 50 square metres.
- Due to be demolished by the seller or landlord and they have all the relevant planning and conservation consents.
