An EPC indicates the energy efficiency of your home with a rating between A and G
All rented properties must have at least an E rating for their EPC
EPCs are carried out by qualified domestic energy assessors and last for the duration of the tenancy
Add EPC to the cart. You can purchase this as a standalone product or for a property you have listed with Mashroom. Choose the address you require the EPC for and select your preferred date and time for the check to be carried out.
We'll check your preferred time and give you a call to confirm the appointment. On the day, the energy assessor will conduct a thorough check, ensuring that your property meets industry standards.
Once the energy assessor has completed the EPC check, you will receive an official certificate stating the property’s energy efficiency. The certificate lasts for 10 years or the length of the tenancy if it runs over the initial 10-year period.
Your home will be given a rating between A and F, with A being the highest. Regulations state that rental properties must have a minimum rating of E.
If you are currently planning to let a property with an EPC rating of F or G, you need to improve the property’s rating to E, or register an exemption, before you enter into a new tenancy.
If you are currently letting a property with an EPC rating of F or G, and you haven’t already taken action, you must improve the property’s rating to E immediately, or register an exemption.
Our EPCs are available in England and Wales.
You can book an EPC online, but a domestic energy assessor will need to carry out a physical survey on your property.
Each EPC lasts for up to 10 years. However, if your tenant is in the property after the EPC expires, you won’t need to get a new one until a new renter moves in.
If you don’t have access to a copy of the EPC, you should be able to retrieve it online by logging into the Landmark Register.
An A rating indicates a highly energy efficient home that will be cheaper to run than homes with a rating lower than A.
A temporary building that will be used for less than two years is exempt from getting an EPC. As is a place of worship or for other religious activities, an industrial site, workshop or non-residential agricultural building that doesn't use much energy.
An EPC lets potential tenants know how much they will spend on energy bills each month. It plays a vital role in helping renters make a decision about moving into your property.
As the landlord, you pay for the EPC – though you can offset the cost against your tax returns.
It is a legal requirement to have an EPC when a building is sold, rented or constructed.
If the EPC expires during a tenancy, it remains valid until the renter moves out of the property.
