Shire Surveyors also provide Energy Performanace Certificates (EPC)

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)

EPCs are required by law when you sell or let a property.

They have been introduced by Government to help improve energy efficiency in buildings, cut carbon emissions and to tackle climate change. The certificate provides an A to G Energy Efficiency Rating (EER) for the building now and potentially with recommended improvements undertaken. With very limited exceptions from 1st April 2018 a rental property on change of tenancy must have a minimum EER rating of E. Similar ratings are provided to assess the building’s environmental impact.

Our accredited Domestic Energy Assessors (DEAs) can inspect the property to provide you with an EPC which remains valid for ten years.
