We have specialist Assessors and Surveyors accredited to provide Energy Performance Certificates on all types of residential and commercial buildings.

New rules in force from April 2018 will compel landlords of commercial and residential properties to ensure their buildings have an EPC rating of at least an E. This means all new lettings – whether commercial or domestic – must meet at least an E rating. These regulations encompass all privately rented property by April 2020 and commercial premises by 2023, even where a lease is already in place or the premises are occupied.
