Whether you're an experienced landlord or a 'first time' investor, you will need to consider energy efficiency. If you're letting property, you are now legally required to make the energy efficiency rating of the building available to your prospective tenants. To do this you need to obtain an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).
Countrywide offers an unrivalled energy assessor service, providing EPCs in a timely and cost efficient manner.
Buildings are responsible for around 40 per cent of the UK's energy consumption and carbon emissions. The introduction of EPCs is an important step in highlighting people's awareness of energy wastage. An EPC tells you how energy efficient a property is on a scale from A to G. An EPC will also advise on the impact the property has on the environment and provide recommendations on how to make the home more energy efficient.
If you are selling property rather than letting you also legally require an Energy Performance Certificate.
