Who requires an EPC?
As of the 21st May 2010, if you decide to place your property on the market for sale or rent in the UK you will need to purchase an EPC. This includes both residential and commercial properties. Since April 2018 it is also a legal requirement for the EPC rating to be a minimium of an 'E' rating in order for that property to be let to a tenant.
Who is responsible for obtaining an EPC?
When you are selling or renting your property, you, as the seller or landlord must provide the EPC. The certificate should be given to the prospective buyer or tenant prior to entering into a sale or lease agreement.
With a new build it is the responsibility of the person carrying out the work. They must provide the owner with the certificate and inform the Building Control Officer or Approved Inspector that this has been completed within the specified time.
The owner/ landlord will have to pay for this survey and we offer extremely competitive prices.
The survey is designed to be a non-invasive visual inspection and all information is to be gathered whilst on site. If there are any measures that cannot be seen i.e. cavity wall insulation, we will require the associated documentation to include this within our certificate.
Can I market or rent the property before I receive the EPC?
As long as you have already ordered and paid for an EPC then you are permitted to put your property on the market or advertise it for renting purposes. We will make sure you receive confirmation of your order immediately after booking the EPC.
When an EPC has been completed the property will get a rating between A and G. If you are selling the property then you cannot get a fail.
Since April 2018 it has been a legal requirement for the EPC rating to be at least an E rating if you are renting the property to a tenant (unless you have a suitable exemption). For more information on this please call 0203 397 8220.

Who are we?
Energyperformancecertificates.co.uk was launched in 2010, providing EPCs to homeowners, landlords and businesses throughout the UK. Our highly qualified Domestic Energy Assessors gather important information on your property’s energy efficiency levels and present you with an energy performance certificate (EPC) at a competitive price.
Whatever your property/building our energy assessors are experienced in all fields from residential to commercial businesses and will ensure that your energy efficiency requirements met with the highest standards of service.
We provide around 2000 EPCs per month throughout England, Wales, and Scotland. We are the largest, direct to consumer, EPC provider in the UK. We simply make our money due to the volumes we do. We do not need to charge a markup or inflate our prices. You will find us typically £20-£55 cheaper than your agent.
We ask that you pay via card at the time of placing the order for two reasons. 1. So you are protected by the Visa/MasterCard Guarantee. 2. We do not allow our assessors to carry cash with them for their safety. Please bear in mind anyone can visit the property to complete the initial assessment but only a qualified assessor can issue the final report. Simply having a visit to the property doesn’t mean that you will get your report once you have handed over the cash. Paying via card ensures that your provider will complete the process from start to finish.
As soon as the booking has been made and paid for online you will receive an order confirmation email along with a receipt for your payment (if your email is not received please check your spam or junk folder). You can then expect to hear from our local assessor usually within 24 hours of the booking to arrange an assessment time.
Once the Energy Assessor has visited the property you will have your report completed normally within 24 hours of the property being assessed. You will be emailed when your EPC is ready for download (again please check your spam folder) and a copy will also be placed on the government's EPC Register.
The EPC is required by law when a building is constructed, sold, or put up for rent. You will also need an EPC if you are applying for a feed-in tariff for solar panels.
