Since October 2008 all properties in the UK, legally require an Energy Performance Certificate to be in place when the property is market for sale or let. The Energy Performance Certificate gives potential buyer or tenants an indication of the thermal and energy efficiency of a building. The process includes an on-site survey, followed by data input to goverment approved software to produce the certificate. Areas such as age, construction type, heating and lighting are all taken into account. Energy Performance Certificates for domestic properties have a self life of 1 year when the property is being sold. Domestic and commercial properties that are being let or leased, the certificate has a self life of 10 years.
All domestic properties must have an Energy Performance Certificate included in the Home Information Pack, which Heron Property Services can also provide at a very reasonable cost.
