Since October 1st 2008, it is mandatory for all landlords in England and Wales to make an EPC, Energy Performance Certificate, available to any prospective tenant free of charge.

Energy Performances Certificates tell owners, potential buyers and tenants about the energy efficiency of a home and how it can be improved. The certificate provides two separate ratings to indicate the overall efficiency of the property and the associated CO2 impact.

The EPC includes a recommendation report which has advice and suggestions on improvements you could make to save money and energy.

The energy performance certificate also shows the rating that could be achieved if all the recommendations are followed. To improve your epc rating, please read eight ways to improve your EPC rating.

In the case of new homes, the recommendation report will be shorter as most money-saving improvements will have already been included in the design.

During the survey the complete set of dimensions for the property will be taken to determine the floor plan area.

The Qualified Domestic Energy Assessor will require access to all rooms, radiators, glazing and lighting. Also required is a visual inspection of the loft space to establish the type of roof insulation used. Secondary heating and water systems will also be identified and supporting pictures will be taken.

The Energy Assessor will compile information about the features of the property to establish an estimated cost for gas and electric. This will not take into account previous bills and is irrespective of personal usage, this enables the figure to be benchmarked against similar properties. The EPC is valid for 10 years.
