Energy Performance Certificates
Property Partners is an accredited Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA), fully approved to provide Energy Performance Certificates (EPC). We carry out assessments and look after regulation compliance requirements on behalf of a wide range of clients including letting and estate agents, solicitors, developers, landlords and home owners.
All domestic and commercial properties that are built, sold or rented out to a new tenant must have a valid EPC. This became a statutory requirement in Scotland in 2009 and EPCs are valid for 10 years from issue.
The EPC gauges a building’s energy efficiency, giving it a rating from A (very efficient) to G (inefficient). This can then be used to calculate approximate heating and lighting costs and the likely carbon dioxide emissions of a building.
