An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is the energy efficiency rating on your leasehold or freehold business and residential premises. This is usually required, as part of the seller's pack, in order to sell your business. For any clarification of any exemptions you are referred to your local Trading Standards Officer.
An EPC grades a building (A – G) to indicate how energy efficient your premises are. An assessor will look at the windows, doors, construction of the building and the equipment to ascertain the premises' carbon footprint and using this data will calculate and produce your EPC. This Certificate is valid for 10 years and will, invariably, be required by your solicitor to complete the sale of your business.
The cost of an EPC usually starts at £129+ VAT for a single Commercial property of up to 50 square meters with an additional charge for any SELF CONTAINED accommodation, if you can get into the accommodation via the business then usually their is no additional fee, please contact us for a free no obligation quotation.
