What is an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). In short it measures how energy efficient your house is. Its a mandatory requirement to have one if you want to sell you house. Most estate agents will have a referral service for EPC providers and usually add a fee on for you to be referred . You shouldn’t be paying more than £55 for an energy performance certificate. Simplermove can obtain a certificate at this price.
They are valid for 10 years so make sure you dont already have one. We have seen cases of estate agents carrying out unnecessary EPC’s just to get the referral fee . You can check if your house has a valid certificate by simply putting your postcode in the box opposite and selecting selling my home. The EPC tab will tell you whether you need a new certificate or whether there is a valid one on the EPC register.
