All homes built on or after 6 April 2008 need to have an Energy Performance Certificate, or EPC.
EPCs tell owners, potential buyers and tenants about the energy efficiency of a home and how it can be improved. It is the responsibility of the builder to provide an EPC when a home is constructed and physically completed. This will also apply if a building is converted into fewer or more units and changes are made to the heating, hot water provision or air conditioning/ventilation services.
The only person who is able to produce an EPC is an accredited energy assessor.
