Before you Buy
If your property was built in the last 10 years, or has recently been let out as a rental property, chances are that you already have an EPC. It doesn’t matter if you or the previous owner purchased it, the certificate is valid for 10 years and we can easily retrieve it for you.
From the 9th January 2013, it is a legal requirement to display the EPC rating in your property advert. If you don’t have one, you could face a hefty fine. HMOs and room lets are not included.
How often does my EPC have to be renewed?
EPCs have to be renewed once every 10 years.
