Energy Performance Certificate

Prior to taking a new tenancy, tenants should ask to see a copy of the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). EPCs give information on how to make a home is more energy efficient and reduce carbon dioxide emissions. All homes whether bought, sold or rented require an EPC. Tenants can check to see if a property or the one  intended to be rented has an EPC by searching the EPC Register.
