When selling or letting property it is a legal obligation to have a valid Energy Performance Certificate in place.
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) provides detailed information about a property’s energy efficiency, giving a rating on a scale from A to G. The EPC also offers suggestions to improve your property’s energy efficiency, potentially saving you money in the long term.

When selling a property in the UK, it is now a legal requirement to have a valid EPC in place before the marketing of the property begins. Your EPC needs to be ordered before you begin to market your home, and therefore available to interested buyers as and when required.
Being a landlord, be it for a singular property or an entire portfolio, comes with many responsibilities, including making sure that all of your properties for rent are energy assessed before they are let. EPCs for your property must be made available to prospective tenants when they view your property.
