As of 9th January 2013 government legislation requires the following:
The seller or landlord must provide an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) free of charge to a prospective buyer or tenant at the earliest opportunity. A copy of the EPC must also be provided to the successful buyer or the person who takes up the tenancy.
EPCs are needed whenever a property is built, sold or rented. You must have a valid EPC for potential buyers and tenants before you market your property to sell or rent. In Scotland, you must display the EPC in the property.
Estate agents and other third parties must ensure that an EPC has been commissioned before they can market a property for sale or rent.
If you need to purchase an EPC, please contact us on: 0333 577 3731
