HIPs and EPCs
What is a EPC?
The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a compulsory document provided by a Domestic Energy Assessor or Home Inspector (who should be registered or approved) on all properties Residential Sales & Lettings and Commercial which are offered for sale or to let.
The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) gives details of the energy efficiency of the property, carbon emissions and will also offer advice on how to improving energy efficiency, cutting emissions and fuel bills
The EPC is compulsory and will be paid for by the Vendor at extra cost, though a small fraction of the total cost of selling your home.
