What is an EPC?
An EPC or Energy Performance Certificate is a 3-5 page document that shows the energy efficiency of a house. It rates properties from an “A” the best, to a “G” the bottom. It may also provide a summary of recommended energy saving improvements with an indication of costs and estimated energy savings.
A Domestic Energy Assessor or DEA for short who is accredited and registered is required to carry out an onsite survey to produce an EPC. The Assessor needs to visit and surveys your property to gather the information. This information is then entered into approved software which then produces the epc certificate.
If you have been asked by building control for an EPC, you’re probably going to need SAP calculations and a SAP EPC. Contact us if you’re not sure.
Why Do I Need an EPC?
The UK Government has set targets to reduce wasted energy in homes. EPCs were created to give energy saving advice to residents moving into a property. It is a legal document that must be provided by the seller to the new owner giving a summary of the energy efficiency of the property. Properties for rental will also require an EPC.
Solicitors, letting agents and estate agents will normally have the responsibility of giving the EPC Certificate to the new resident. A rental property must achieve an energy rating of at least an E, from April 2020 to be deemed suitable to let.

Landlord EPC Certificates
The Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard
An EPC rates the building from an A, the highest, to a G the lowest. To legally let a property, the energy rating must be as least an E. The regulations that govern this is called The Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard or (MEES) for short.
If your property is currently an F or G it cannot legally be let. If there is an existing tenant in the building and the rating is lower than an E, then the landlord has to take steps to get the rating up to an E. Get in touch for expert advice on making sure your properties in London meet the minimum epc rating and help on applying for an exemption if necessary.
