Click Estate Agents can carry out a full EPC on all sole agency instructions. For a small fee when you sign a sole agency agreement we will instruct our contractors to attend your premises and issue an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

What is an EPC Certificate?

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rates the energy efficiency of a property and its carbon emissions. It also suggests ways in which you can improve the properties energy efficiency.

I want to sell my property, do I need an EPC?

Simply, Yes. The law requires all estate agents to ensure an EPC is in place before the property marketing starts. This helps both the seller and buyer when the property sale is going through.

Letting your property?

Even if you are letting your property you will need an EPC certificate. Click Estate Agents can handle your EPC certification and ensure your peace of mind and no hassle.

How will I know what an EPC says?

An EPC will provide a detailed report on the property, showing what can be done to help reduce the amount of energy used, and the carbon dioxide emitted. It will include:

  • Summary of the key elements in the property that have impact on its performance rating, such as windows, heating systems and controls.
  • Suggested improvements, like fitting loft insulation.
  • Possible cost savings per year, if the improvements were made.
  • How the recommendations would change the energy and carbon emission rating of the property.

How long is an EPC valid for?

An EPC certificate is valid for 10 years. But if a new EPC is produced then the newer EPC must be used to show relevant and up to date reports.
