EPCs – Domestic and Commercial Energy Performance Certificates
Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are needed whenever a property is:
You must order an EPC for potential buyers and tenants before you market your property to sell or rent.
In Scotland, you must display the EPC somewhere in the property, e.g. in the meter cupboard or next to the boiler.
An EPC contains:
information about a property’s energy use and typical energy costs
recommendations about how to reduce energy use and save money
An EPC gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and is valid for 10 years.

See other properties’ EPCs
You can look at the EPCs of other properties free of charge.
This lets you compare your home’s energy performance with that of similar homes.
You can opt out of the EPC register if you don’t want other people to be able to see your EPC.
