When is an EPC needed?
It’s a legal requirement to have an EPC for a property before it can be sold or re-let. In most cases, landlords marketing their properties for rent must have an EPC available for prospective tenants to view.
As from the 1st April 2018 there will be a requirement for any properties rented out in the private rented sector to normally have a minimum energy performance rating of E on an energy performance certificate. The regulations will come into force for new lets and renewals of tenancies with effect from 1st April 2018 and for all existing tenancies on 1st April 2020.
How long does an EPC take?
We support our clients throughout England, Scotland and Wales by securing a maximum of three day turnaround time to complete an EPC.
The EPC inspection will take approximately 30 to 45 minutes and will involve a qualified energy assessor visiting the property to gather information relating to the energy performance of the building.
Who carries out an EPC?
Only qualified and accredited energy assessors are permitted to produce the EPC. Pennington Choices ensure all inspectors are trained to the highest possible level and run continuous ‘on the job’ training to ensure their training is constantly kept up to date. As part of Pennington Choices enrolment procedures, all assessors must supply a valid DBS certificate, along with evidence of their qualifications.
