Ensuring your property is safe
Providing an energy performance certificate
Before you market your property to prospective tenants, you’re required to provide an energy performance certificate (EPC). EPC’s contain information which covers the typical energy costs and energy use in a property and they also give recommendations on how energy consumption can be reduced. The documents, which are valid for 10 years, give properties an efficiency rating from A (the most efficient) down to G. To get an EPC, you’ll need to contact an accredited assessor. There is a minimum rating in place too which you must adhere too although there are exemptions.
