FAQs

What is an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)?
An Energy Performance Certificate is a report which shows the energy efficiency and environmental impact of a home using a scale of A – G, where A is the most energy efficient. They also show recommendations and advice to save energy and reduce fuel bills. An EPC is required for all properties marketed for sale or rent in England and Wales.

Is a Home Information Pack no longer required to sell a property?
As of Thursday 20th May 2010 the duty for homeowners or agents to have a Home Information Pack (HIP) in place before any marketing of a residential property can take place was suspended (pending their outright abolition by primary legislation). It is no longer a requirement to have a HIP before you market a property.

How will the seller benefit from an EPC?
The EPC will identify various improvements to reduce fuel bills and make the property more attractive to potential buyers.

Why should the seller trust the energy assessment?
All domestic energy assessors have completed a nationally recognized qualification and are members of an Accreditation scheme which ensures they have had a criminal record check and that they have suitable insurance cover should any claims be made.

What happens if the seller withdraws the property from the market?
The EPC remains valid for 10 years and as such can be re-used within this time period.

Will an assessment take place at my property?
Yes. An internal and external inspection will take place by a suitably qualified and NHER accredited Domestic Energy Assessor. As well as making site notes it is necessary to take photographs as part of the inspection record.

What areas do you cover?
North-east England which includes Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, Gateshead and Durham.

What is the validity period for a rental EPC?
Currently a domestic EPC remains valid for 10 years from the date the certificate was provided. However you may choose to renew your EPC earlier if there have been any significant changes made to the property such as an increase in insulation or a new central heating system.
