The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a requirement for all rental properties in England and Wales. It shows the energy efficiency of the property, as well as useful information on how you can make it greener and more efficient. It serves as a legal requirement for landlords and is essential for potential buyers or tenants. If a property has a low rating, then the buyer or tenant will know that the energy bills for that property could be high.
The property is given a rating of between A and G. The more energy-efficient a property, the
closer to A in the alphabet the rating will be. Any property in England, Scotland or Wales that is either being built, marketed for sale or let as an entire property requires an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).
