In addition to our normal plans services our RICS energy assessors are also able to provide our customers with the associated domestic or commercial Energy Performance Certificates for the property.
All buildings are now required by the European Directive on the Energy Performance of Buildings to have an Energy Performance Certificate on the sale, rent or construction of the building.
The legislation commenced with EPC's for domestic properties, and from 6th April 2008 all commercial buildings with a floor area greater than 10,000 sq mtrs which are newly built, to be sold or for a new tenancy were required to have an EPC.
From 1st July 2008 the minimum floor area was reduced to 2,500 sq mtrs.
From 1st October 2008 it was reduced to include properties less than 2,500 sq mtrs.
