EPC Bristol

EPC Bristol – Energy Performance Certificates

How do I know if I need an EPC?

An EPC is now required by law when a building is constructed, sold or put on the market for rental purposes.

Sellers or buyers of homes

All sellers of homes need to ensure that an EPC is made available to a potential homebuyer.

Landlords

Landlords are required to make an EPC available to prospective tenants the first time they let a home after 1 October 2008. An EPC is only required for a property which is self-contained, and is valid for 10 years.  Where a tenant rents a room and shares facilities, an EPC isn’t required.

Tenants

If you are looking to rent a property then an EPC must be made available to you free of charge. An EPC is only required for self-contained properties: an EPC isn’t required when you rent a room and share facilities.

Builders

An EPC needs to be provided to buyers of newly built properties.

EPCs provide:

  • Data regarding the energy usage and carbon dioxide emissions of a property
  • Recommendations and suggestions to lower the energy use and carbon dioxide emissions of that property

EPC’s show energy ratings and compare the current energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions with the potential ratings that the building could achieve. The “Potential” EPC Bristolratings

are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions would be if the energy saving recommendations were put into place.

The Energy ratings graph measures the energy and carbon emission efficiency of your home using a grade from A to G. An A rating is the best, whilst G is the least efficient. All homes are measured using the same calculations.  This enables the direct comparison of the energy efficiency of different properties.

You are under no obligation to act on the recommendations in the recommendation report. However, in doing so, it could lower your energy costs and make your property more attractive for sale or rent.
