Edinburgh’s first choice for EPCs in Edinburgh.
In today’s era of sustainability and energy efficiency, Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are essential in Scotland’s housing and letting market. An EPC is a document that provides information on a property’s energy use and typical energy costs.
EPC includes recommendations on how to reduce energy use and save money, and it grades the property from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient).
IES an award-winning company, is at the forefront of providing EPC services in Edinburgh and surrounding areas.
What is an EPC certificate in Scotland
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a legally required document for homeowners, landlords, and property sellers in the UK. An EPC evaluates the energy efficiency of a building based on factors such as insulation, heating, and cooling systems.
The EPC is vital for prospective buyers or tenants as it provides a clear understanding of the property’s energy consumption, allowing them to make informed decisions.
Are EPCs required by Landlords in Edinburgh?
Edinburgh, being the capital city of Scotland, has a thriving property market. Regulations place a strong emphasis on energy efficiency to reduce carbon emissions and promote environmental conservation. Landlords in Edinburgh must provide an EPC to tenants or buyers before marketing a property.
- Compliance with Legal Obligations: An EPC is mandatory when renting or selling a property. Failing to provide one can result in fines and legal consequences. You require this legally before advertising the property and will not be able to list this prior to having a EPC carried out.
- Transparency: It offers a transparent view of the property’s energy efficiency, helping tenants or buyers make an informed choice. Having a poor EPC rating will directly affect your rent/ sale price, having a poor rating may also stop you being able to rent out the property.
- Energy Savings: The EPC’s recommendations can guide landlords and tenants in implementing energy-saving measures, thus lowering energy bills. IES on the back of a poor EPC rating will give you a detailed quote showing you where you can upgrade your system to offer a better rating in turn this will improve your property and rent per month.
