Who needs a EPC certificate?
An domestic EPC certificate for a residential property is required by law when selling or renting a property. This means that if you have rented or purchased a property since 1st October 2008, then an EPC survey should have been carried out. However, there are other things that may trigger a survey, such as a stock condition survey, or a planned improvement measure.

To produce an EPC certificate for a residential property, an assessment will need to be carried out. The survey would take on average 45 minutes. This would involve taking notes relating to the construction and energy related facets of the property. Where possible, we will also view any loft spaces as well as creating a brief floor plan of the property.
Digital photographs are taken of parts of the property which relate to energy efficiency. Please note that this is purely a ’visual’ assessment and no energy related items, such as the heating system or lighting, are tested.
The data collected in the inspection, is then input into the government approved software back at our office and the EPC certificate is created, and lodged. You will then be sent a link to the certificate within 24 hrs.
