An energy performance certificate is an official document indicating the energy efficiency of a building. It helps prospective buyers or tenants compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
When applying for a building permit for a new building, the property owner must order the energy performance certificate. Energy performance certificates are also required for properties, or parts of properties, being sold or let.
A property’s energy performance certificate must be available to any potential buyers or tenants as soon as you start to market a property for sale or rent. Read more about energy performance certificatesOpens new window.
