Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)
EPCs give you a rating of how energy efficient the building is, as well as a potential rating if improvements were to be made.
To sell or rent a property, you must have an EPC.
By 2040, all properties will have at least EPC rating C.
An EPC is valid for 10 years and can be used multiple times in this period. Once it expires, you should produce a new certificate which is valid for a further 10 years.
An EPC is not required when a tenant rents a room and shares facilities.
