The Energy Performance Certificate is a legal document that provides details on the energy efficiency of a property. It looks at heating costs and carbon emissions, grading your home from A to G. It also gives both the buyers and sellers information on the average cost of energy bills, with suggestions on how to save money with certain energy efficient measures.


How is an EPC presented?

The EPC displays two graphs. With the first including an energy efficient rating, which measures the homes overall efficiency. If a property receives a high rating then it is more energy-efficient and this means that the energy bills are likely to cost less.

An environmental impact rating is displayed on the second graph. This measures the impact on the environment and the emissions from carbon dioxide. This rating will provide a list of cost-effective measures and the potential rating of the building if these are installed. So they could be well worth doing.

Who orders the EPC?

The responsibility of ordering the EPC is with the seller. And you will have 28 days to receive it after putting your home on the market.  As long as it has been ordered, the EPC does not need to be available when you first start marketing your property.

If you need any more help with the necessary documents behind your home move then contact us today and talk to a trained member of staff.

The benefit of a tracker, as opposed to a discount from the lender's SVR, is that if the Bank of England reduce the base rate then your rate will reduce simultaneously, whereas if you are discounted from the lender's SVR, there is no guarantee if, when and by how much the lender will follow suit, as they are not obliged to do anything.
