Energy Performance Certificates.

Energy Performance Certificates.

Every residential property in England and Wales is now legally required to have a valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

The residential property specialists here at Lanyon Bowdler will ensure your property complies with this requirement as part of the residential conveyancing process, so you can concentrate on your impending move rather than complicated documentation.

What is a Residential Property Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)?

An EPC contains information about a property’s energy use and carbon dioxide emissions, along with suggestions and recommendations to help make it more energy-efficient.

Reports have to be produced by an accredited domestic energy assessor (DEA), who will provide an official Energy Performance Certificate.

All residential property must have a valid EPC, whether it is available to rent, for sale, or newly built.

What Information is Included in an EPC?

All properties are given an energy efficiency and environmental impact rating, which take into account things like the heating system, the type of windows and insulation.

Recommendations are given by the assessor which will help improve the energy efficiency of the property.

Testimonials

What our clients say.

Lanyon Bowdler handled a property transfer for me. I was very pleased with the service I received. The staff were all friendly and very professional. I was kept informed throughout the process and was able to talk directly to the lady who was dealing with my case. I was in a difficult situation and she was kind and empathetic.

This was the first house sale LB handled for us, we were very happy with the efficient, professional service. They were always available to answer questions and kept the momentum of the sale going when our purchaser kept delaying. Overall very satisfied with the service, would highly recommend them.

Selling a house – made easy. A solicitor and team who were friendly, very professional and returned all my calls promptly. At the time of selling my property my elderly father was very ill. I experienced kindness and a great willingness to ensure I could relax and know everything was taken care of.

We recently used Lanyon Bowdler ( Conwy office) for a more complex conveyancing – selling two properties simultaneously and buying one. Highly recommended. The fixed fee made it very clear for us too.
