The Bribery Act 2010

Energy Performance Certificates
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) shows the energy current and potential energy rating of a property in a sliding scale from ‘A’ (very efficient) to ‘G’ (least efficient). From 1 October 2008, an EPC is required by the landlord when any building is constructed, sold or rented, and occasionally following refurbishment work. Those carrying out the construction of a building will be required to provide an EPC to the owner. A recommendations report setting out how the rating could be improved accompanies every EPC.
Davis Coffer Lyons is able to recommend qualified assessors nationwide who can provide a cost effective and accurate EPC. We will be unable to market a business for sale without an EPC.
