Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Commercial Energy Performance Certificate?

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are now required for all commercial buildings whenever built, rented or sold. The certificate records how energy efficient a property is as a building and provides A-G ratings. These are similar to the labels now provided with domestic appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines. The EPC allows prospective buyers, tenants, owners and occupiers to see information on the energy efficiency and carbon emissions from their building so they can consider energy efficiency and fuel costs as part of their investment. An EPC is always accompanied by a recommendation report that lists cost effective and other measures (such as low and zero carbon generating systems) to improve the energy rating.

Who is responsible in arranging the EPC?

It is the responsibility of the person selling or renting a building to have a valid EPC to show to prospective buyers and tenants. The EPC must be given to the eventual buyer or tenant.

How long are EPCs valid for?

The certificate is valid for ten years, or until a newer EPC is prepared.

Can a prospective tenant or buyer waive their right to receive an EPC?

No the building owner has a duty under government legislation to provide an EPC when the building is let or sold. Failure to do so could result in prosecution and a fine.

Are there any exemptions?

Yes some buildings are exempt. Please contact us for further information and advice.
