An Energy Performance Certificate, or EPC, determines the energy efficiency rating of a commercial or domestic property. Energy surveys are carried out by qualified Domestic Energy Assessors (DEA) or Non-Domestic Energy Assessors (NDEA), who have been trained and accredited to identify and report on energy saving aspects of a property, and in particular the property’s green credentials.

Energy performance is rated by energy use per square-metre of flooring, while energy efficiency is measured via projected fuel costs and CO2 emissions. All properties are assessed in line with the UK’s Standard Assessment Procedure to ensure both accuracy and best industry practice. The EPC will also outline areas that can be improved, and suggest practical recommendations to enhance energy performance.

An EPC enables a potential buyer, tenant or leaseholder to understand the energy ratings and potential costs of inhabiting or working from a property. In 2008, it was made a legal requirement to present an EPC if your home or commercial property is up for sale or lease. Non-compliance can result in a hefty fine. It’s the responsibility of the property owner or landlord to instruct the EPC.

You can check if a valid EPC exists for your property by accessing the EPC national register -

Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) for Landlords

Since 1st April 2018, phase one of the MEES regulations came into force which has big implications for domestic and commercial landlords of private rented property. As a result of this, it is deemed unlawful to let properties with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating below an 'E' rating.

Since 1st April 2020, MEES regulation has been extended to ALL domestic privately rented property, not just new leases.

From 1st April 2023, MEES regulation will be extended to include ALL existing commercial leases.

Direct energy surveys can offer cost effective solutions to ensure your property is MEES compliant and achieves it’s best possible rating.

Looking for Domestic EPC information?

If you’re selling or renting your home, a domestic EPC is legally required.

Your EPC helps potential buyers and tenants make an informed decision based on the energy efficiency and running costs of your property. Similarly, if you’re selling, marketing or renting business premises to new owners or leaseholders, you’ll need a commercial EPC. Commercial energy assessment helps to determine the building’s energy rating. Want to find out more? Contact us today.
