When a commercial or residential property is to be advertised for sale or rent/lease it will legally require an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). A property agent or property website will not allow an advert for a home or business to be put on the market without there first being an EPC done and available to show interested parties.
Trading Standards can issue fines to both agents and owners for either failing to provide EPC details on an advert or making available on request to any interested party. An EPC gives useful information to anyone looking to buy or rent so it is always good to have it showing in the advert and for a successful transaction.
You may also be applying for a government energy grant or funding which requires an EPC or you may just want to see your property’s energy efficiency score. If so we can help

EPCs for domestic dwellings originated around the time when Home Information Packs (HIPs) were obligatory for sellers. HIPs have since been abolished, however, the requirement for an EPC remains when a house or flat is built, sold or let. Domestic EPCs need to be available to potential buyers or tenants as soon as you start to market your property so it’s something that needs to be prepared in advance.
At ‘EPC For You’, our EPCs include all relevant legal information about the certificate and the property as well as the asset rating, technical information in brief and any benchmarks. We can also determine your EPC requirement according to the current up-to-date legislation. This may seem straightforward, but if your property has been split or designed to be used as separate dwellings, multiple EPCs could be required to comply with legal obligations.
Because of the legal requirement for EPCs, all commercial EPCs must be carried out by a trained and accredited non-domestic energy assessor. Helpfully, the Department for Communities and Local Government has arranged for a publicly accessible central register of such assessors maintained by the Landmark Information Group, however, at ‘EPC For You’, we can confirm that all our commercial energy assessors appear on that register.
