Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
Under current legislation, there is a requirement for properties being marketed for sale or to rent, to have an EPC available, for prospective purchasers/tenants to view.
The EPC must be commissioned within 7 days of registering your property for sale or to rent. (Because the 7 day rule applies to all properties, there is an additional allowance of up to 21 days to obtain the EPC, although it is likely that the extra 21 days to will only be used for complex buildings which require extra time).
Should an EPC not be available after the 28 days, the property must not be advertised until an EPC has been obtained and can be included in the marketing details.
An EPC report is valid for 10 years.
White and Hayward can recommend and instruct a qualified assessor to visit your property and carry out a report for you at very competitive rates.
Please telephone the branch and ask for current prices.
