Commercial Energy Performance Certificates
In short, Commercial EPC’s are required should there be an intended sale of a commercial property, the granting of a new lease or assignment of an existing lease.
The commercial EPC provides the owner of a commercial property and the potential buyer with an energy efficiency rating. This allows the purchaser to make an informed decision on the carbon consumption of their investment and how they can make any potential savings on their energy costs.
The EPC has to be made available at the earliest opportunity and/or when:
- When the property particulars have been prepared or when any written information has been provided in response to a request for information from a serious buyer or tenant.
- When a viewing is undertaken.
- Before entering into a contract to sell, let or assign.
