Types of EPC Surveys We Offer:

EPC Renewals

EPC after Property Upgrade

Energy Performance Certificates are valid for 10 years from their date of issue, and if you’re buying a house as a home then you’re unlikely to renew an expired EPC until you consider moving or renting it out while you buy another property. 

Whether you’re preparing to sell your home or rent it out as an investment, depending on when it last had an energy assessment you may be required to get an up to date EPC to remain compliant.

Contact us today and we can assist you to obtain a current certificate for your property.

Property Upgrade EPC

EPC Certificate After Property Upgrades

Following an upgrade to your property such as loft insulation or an upgraded appliance you are likely to have improved the rating of your home. 

A reassessment of your home following a boiler upgrade, installation of solar panels or even replacing lightbulbs with LED alternatives can improve the efficiency of your home and help you achieve a higher rating in your EPC.

Contact us today to arrange for an assessor to visit your property and prepare you a new certificate.

Frequently Asked Questions:

An EPC is a report which demonstrates how energy efficient a property is.

The results are scored from A to G, with A being the highest score and is based on a number of factors that are considered during a visit from an assessor. 

Also supplied within the certificate will be recommendations for further works that could benefit the EPC score if they were completed on the property in question. These include easy and affordable changes such as replacing lightbulbs for LED equivalents or larger investments such as heat pumps and solar panel installations.  

The price of an EPC (Energy performance certificate) will depend entirely on the size and configuration of the property. The configuration is an important consideration when pricing, because what may be classed as a two bedroom property may actually be split over three stories with multiple reception rooms, en suites and bathrooms for example. 

For these reasons we have set our EPC Prices in a clear and fair structure, which you can view here.

It depends. For most homeowners you will only require a valid EPC when it comes to selling your home. For landlords, while your property is classed as a rental property then in Wales you will also require an up to date EPC.

There are however exceptions to these rules for properties such as listed buildings. Read on for more information.

Properties such as listed buildings may not require an EPC, as the conditions for achieving a high score with modifications such as double glazing are often prohibited on such properties due to their preservation requirements.

Additional scenarios that may have exemptions from an EPC include:

  • AirBnB, Holiday homes and residential buildings used less than 4 months a year
  • Industrial sites and workshops
  • Buildings that are to be demolished
  • Buildings intended to be used for less than 2 years
  • Stand-alone buildings with less than 50 square metres of useful floor space
  • Places of worship
If you are the owner of any of the above properties you should contact a qualified energy assessor to discuss your property in detail.

EPC’s are valid for 10 years from their date of commission, however when you come to sell or rent your property you may be asked to renew your certificate earlier if the time remaining is less than 6 months. 

On the other hand, if you’re thinking of renting or selling your property you may be fortunate enough to still have a valid EPC with sufficient time remaining. Check the EPC register first to see if your property still has ample timing remaining and if you could avoid paying for a new EPC.

As of the time of writing this, the current fine for not having a valid EPC when selling or renting your property can be up to £5,000.

As of the time of writing this, aspects of a property that will be checked include but are not limited to:

  • the type and quantity of insulation
  • the property size
  • the type of boiler and heating system
  • whether windows are single, double or triple glazed
  • the lighting used in the property
