Energy Performance Certificates


Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are needed whenever a property is:

  • built
  • sold
  • rented

If you’re selling or renting your home, you must order an EPC for potential buyers and tenants before you market your property.

An EPC contains:

  • information about a property’s energy use and typical energy costs
  • recommendations about how to reduce energy use and save money

An EPC gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and it is valid for 10 years.
If you don’t get an EPC when you need one, you can be fined.

Buildings that don’t need an EPC - these include:

  • places of worship
  • temporary buildings that will be used for less than 2 years
  • stand-alone buildings with total useful floor space of less than 50 square metres
  • industrial sites, workshops and non-residential agricultural buildings that don’t use a lot of energy
  • some buildings that are due to be demolished
  • holiday accommodation that’s rented out for less than 4 months a year or is let under a licence to occupy
  • listed buildings
  • residential buildings intended to be used less than 4 months a year
