Question : Did you know that Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are required when any building is sold, rented out or constructed!

EPCs give information on a building's energy efficiency in a sliding scale from 'A' (very efficient) to 'G' (least efficient). The new format EPCs show the 'Estimated energy costs of this home' over a three year period and the 'Top actions you can take to save money and make your home more efficient' which all feeds into the Government's Green Deal initiative.

When the Green Deal launches, it may enable tenants or owners to improve the property they live in to make it more energy efficient, more comfortable and cheaper to run, without having to pay for the work upfront. You can choose which measures you want and ask for a quote from an authorised Green Deal provider. They will organise installation by an authorised installer.

You pay for the improvements over time through your electricity bill, at a level no greater than the estimated savings to energy bills. If you move home, the Green Deal charge stays with the property and the repayments pass to the new bill payer.

All EPCs are valid for 10 years.

Landlords

Dreamweaver CS3Private residential landlords are legally required to provide an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) when renting out a home to new tenants.

Landlords must give a copy to prospective tenants when they view a property, when they ask for any written information about a property and before any rental contract is signed. It remains valid for ten years and can be used for all new tenants in that period.

 

More on The Green Deal

Heralded as a “revolution” in the UK energy sector, the Green Deal is the flagship government initiative to increase the energy efficiency of British properties in the public and private sector.

First proposed to parliament in December 2010 as the centrepiece of the Coalition Government’s Energy Bill, the Green Deal will allow private energy firms to provide domestic and commercial customers with double glazing, loft and wall insulation and other structural improvements designed to boost the energy efficiency of their buildings and reduce heating bills.

From autumn 2012, participating energy utility companies and accredited retailers such as Tesco, B&Q and Marks & Spencer will provide customers across the UK with quality-assured work to their homes, businesses and community spaces for no upfront cost, and without loans or advance finance.

The full cost of the measures will be recovered through instalments on the energy bill over several years, and because the Green Deal is not a personal loan or an advance payment scheme, there is no obligation to continue paying the instalments if you move house.

Suitability for the scheme will be assessed on a simple calculation, known as the “golden rule” of the Green Deal - the predicted savings from the energy efficiency improvements to your property must equal or exceed the cost of installation.
