To market a property for sale or to rent you will need a valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), with very few exemptions.

As certificates are valid for 10 years, you may well find that your property has a current certificate, you can search the national database to check if there is a current certificate.

If you are marketing your property to let, you will also need to comply with Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES), which require a property to achieve a minimum E rating, or qualify for a limited number of exemptions. Whilst a listed building does not require an EPC when marketed for sale, in order to comply with MEES a listed building that is let will require an EPC to be in place.

If your property requires an EPC, we are happy to arrange these for you via our trusted local supplier, Green Energy Consultants. An EPC typically costs in the region of £60.
