EPC's // Learn More About Ashtons Green Side
Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) have been introduced to help improve the energy efficiency of our buildings. If you are selling, or renting a home you now need a certificate by law. Ours cost just £70, and our professional photographer will be able to complete it within the same appointment.
So... What is an EPC?
Energy Performance Certificates or, EPC's as they are more commonly known by are the only surviving document from the short-lived HIP. They provide information about a buildings energy efficiency in an aid to reduce the homeowners carbon footprint and to help buyers or tenants make an informed decision when taking the plunge.
If you are a home-owner putting your property up for sale, or a Landlord needing to rent a property out then you're going to be needing an EPC.
