Property Partners is an accredited Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA), fully approved to provide Energy Performance Certificates (EPC). We carry out assessments and look after regulations compliance requirements on behalf of a wide range of clients including landlords, developers, fellow letting agents, solicitors and homeowners.
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 their 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.
