Section 63

Section 63 Compliance - Glasgow, Edinburgh, Central Scotland

The Section 63 legislature requires certain non-domestic buildings and properties to be assessed.

It is also a legal requirement for the building owner to improve the energy performance of these buildings, and reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from them.

These regulations apply to all commercial or industrial buildings for sale and lease that are over 1000m2. The regulation is in addition to Energy Performance Certificates.

A Section 63 Action Plan must be ready to present to prospective buyers or tenants and provided to the new owner or tenant.

Failure to provide an action Plan or to undertake improvements can result in costly fines (up to £1000 per failure) and may delay the sale or rent of a building.

One the plus side, the changes implemented to improve the building can result in savings of thousands per year.

Where the improvement targets and measures are agreed these must be implemented within 42 months of the first action plan.

An initial EPC is carried out to see if Section 63 can be avoided if legally possible. In cases where Section 63 is required, we will work with you to put together a plan to achieve compliance at the lowest cost.
