Energy Performance Certificates Regulations – sales and rental of existing dwellings. Since 2009 any existing
dwelling which is for sale or rent has to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). This is a requirement of the Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspections) Regulations (NI) 2008. Basically, the requirement is that an EPC should be made available when a potential purchaser or tenant asks to see written details of the dwelling or when s/he requests to view the dwelling and in any event before entering into a contract to sell or rent.
The EPC has to be accompanied by a report that contains recommendations for the cost-effective improvement of the energy performance of the property. The objective of this requirement is not only that the prospective purchaser is advised of the energy performance of the dwelling at the earliest opportunity, but is also advised of the cost-effective improvements that can be carried out if s/he purchases or rents the dwelling. Such recommendations for your property are very useful, particularly given the recent rises in fuel costs.
An EPC may only be produced by a trained and accredited energy assessor who is a member of a Scheme accredited by Government and therefore licensed to practice as an Energy Assessor.
