Energy Performance Certificate

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a document that provides information on the energy efficiency of a property. The certificate is prepared by a qualified assessor and must be included as part of the RICS Home Survey – Level 1 service.

The certificate will provide an energy efficiency rating for the property, based on how energy-efficient the property is in relation to other similar properties. The rating will be given on a scale of A (very efficient) to G (inefficient).

The certificate will also contain information on the property’s carbon dioxide emissions and recommendations on how to improve the energy efficiency of the property.
