Energy Performance Certificates


An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is intended to tell you and potential buyers how energy efficient a house is and make recommendations on how to improve the properties energy performance. An EPC is legally required for selling a residential property in England and Wales.

  1. An EPC has been commissioned when a Domestic Energy Assessor has been instructed to prepare the EPC and the EPC has either been paid for or has given a clear undertaking to pay for it.

  2. A new duty on the person acting on behalf of the seller to be satisfied that an EPC has been commissioned before commencing marketing.

  3. A new duty on both the seller and a person acting on their behalf to make reasonable efforts to secure an EPC within 28 days.

  4. All of the new duties carry fixed penalties where somebody fails in the duty conferred on them by the new regulations.


When you instruct Clear Properties to market your property we will make the necessary arrangements for our Domestic Energy Assessor to visit your property and conduct the survey and produce the EPC for you.
