Your 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.

An 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.

This ensures:

  • 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.
