Understanding EPC obligations

27th February 2014

When it comes to property transactions, there have been many surveyed documents added to the list that need to be produced prior to completion in the last 10 years. One common to both residential and commercial property transactions is the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). EPBD regulations stipulate that since 2007 domestic properties require an EPC before sale, with commercial properties being added in 2008. However there have been many amendments to the regulations and, this added to the number of various scenarios possible such as mixed units/places of worship etc, means it is not always clear exactly what or even if an EPC is required.

ETSOS’s commitment to our one-stop-shop philosophy brings to you a specialist department that provides guidance on when and what type of EPC is required, and produces EPCs for residential and commercial buildings (both existing and new build). We have even created a quick reference guide to EPCs to hep firms better their legal obligations:

Quick Reference Guide to EPCs

If you cannot find what you are looking for in the guide or have a specific scenario you are still unsure of, please contact contacted us on 01524 220013 or email energy@etsos.co.uk

To make life as simple as possible existing build domestic EPCs can be added to your case in a few seconds via the ‘Dom Survey’ tab on the order screen. For commercial and new build EPCs we can provide a same day quotation and add the products to your case meaning you have all the documents required in one place, saving you time and administration.

If you have any questions or would like any further information on our EPC services please do not hesitate to contact Ben Robinson on 01524 220013.
