Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are documents that provide information about the energy efficiency of a building in the United Kingdom.
They are required by law when a building is constructed, sold, or leased and provide a rating of the building's energy efficiency, from A to G, with A being the most energy efficient and G being the least.
An EPC provides information on the building's energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions, as well as recommendations for improving its energy efficiency.
The certificate also provides information on the building's environmental impact and energy costs, which can be useful for both the building owner and potential buyers or tenants.
EPCs are produced by qualified energy assessors, who carry out an assessment of the building's energy performance and produce the certificate.
The assessor will consider factors such as the age and type of building, insulation, heating systems, and glazing to produce the certificate.
EPCs are valid for 10 years and must be provided to potential buyers or tenants before the sale or lease of the building. Building owners who fail to provide an EPC could face penalties, including fines.
Overall, Energy Performance Certificates play an important role in helping building owners and potential buyers or tenants to understand the energy efficiency of a building, reducing its environmental impact, and lowering energy costs.
In the UK, Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are required by law to be provided when a building is constructed, sold, or leased.
The minimum rating that an EPC must provide is an E. This means that the building must meet a certain level of energy efficiency, with a rating of E or higher, in order to be sold or leased.
Buildings with an EPC rating of F or G are considered to be the least energy efficient and are subject to additional regulations, such as the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) regulations, which came into effect in April 2018.
These regulations state that landlords cannot rent out commercial or domestic properties with an EPC rating of F or G, unless they have made significant improvements to the energy efficiency of the building.
It is important to note that the purpose of EPCs is to provide information on the energy efficiency of a building and to encourage building owners to make improvements to reduce their energy consumption and carbon footprint.
Building owners with a low EPC rating are encouraged to make energy efficiency improvements to reduce their energy costs and improve the comfort of the building for its occupants.
In Scotland, Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are required by law when a building is constructed, sold, or leased.
The minimum rating that an EPC must provide is a "D". This means that the building must meet a certain level of energy efficiency, with a rating of D or higher, in order to be sold or leased.
Like the rest of the UK, buildings with an EPC rating of F or G are considered to be the least energy efficient and subject to additional regulations. For example, the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) regulations in Scotland state that landlords cannot rent out properties with an EPC rating of F or G unless they have made significant improvements to the energy efficiency of the building.
In Scotland, the Scottish government has set a target to reduce carbon emissions by 66% by 2032, compared to 1990 levels. To achieve this, the Scottish government is encouraging building owners to improve the energy efficiency of their buildings and to reduce their carbon footprint.
Overall, Energy Performance Certificates play an important role in Scotland by providing information on the energy efficiency of buildings and encouraging building owners to make improvements to reduce their energy consumption and carbon footprint.

An EICR, also known more commonly as an electrical report, is an in-depth check of all the electrical circuits in a property in order to identify any potential dangers such as deterioration, defects or damage. Upon completion you will either be issued with a certificate to show that the wiring of your premises is within acceptable parameters, or a list of remediation actions will be provided.

It is a legal requirement to ensure that all electrical equipment you provide in your rental accommodation is safe and properly maintained.

All commercial property that is sold or let must have an Energy Performance Certificate, commonly known as an EPC, commissioned prior to or within 7 days of being put on the market. A Commercial EPC comes with a recommendation report that outlines how the energy performance of the building could be improved.
