Do you think you have an EPC but lost it?
Energy Performance Certificates are valid for up to 10 years from date of issue. It is now a requirement to have a valid EPC for your rental property or if you are considering selling your property, you will need to produce an Energy Performance Certificate or pay for one!
Save yourself at least £75 if you suspect an Energy Performance Certificate was carried out on your property, it takes just a few seconds to find out.
All energy assessors are required by Law to register the Energy Performance Certificate on national EPC Register in England and Wales.
Thankfully in England and Wales, you can search for an EPC using post code of property. Start to search for an EPC using EPC Register.
In Scotland, you will require an Report Reference Number or RRN number for short! So unless you have a previous copy of EPC, chances of finding it are pretty slim. Of course you can contact the your previously appointed Energy Assessor to see if they have a copy on file.
