An EPC is intended to inform potential buyers or tenants about the energy performance of buildings in West Wales, so they can consider energy efficiency as part of their investment or business decision to buy or occupy that building.
An Commercial EPC is only required when a building is constructed, sold or rented out. Not only in West Wales but Wales and England.
EPCs for non-dwellings must be produced by an accredited non-domestic energy assessor, who is a member of a government approved accreditation scheme. Our assessor Phil Stacey can carry out a survey of your Commercial property in West Wales, and and supply you with a commercial EPC.
Quidos and Elmhurst accredited Phil Stacey is a qualified, accredited and insured Commercial Energy Assessor with 10 years’ experience, offering a warm & efficient service, putting clients at ease and providing a professional service to commercial clients throughout West Wales.
If you are selling, renting or building commercial property, you need a commercial EPC report.
If a property is split into parts ‘designed or altered to be used as separate accommodation' the parts may each require their own EPC. The sale and let of commercial buildings can be complex with multiple tenancies and uses.
Whether you need a single or multiple EPC reports may depend on the heating systems, and your future plans for the building.
An EPC should be provided to a prospective buyer or tenant at the earliest opportunity, and no later than when a viewing is conducted, or when written information is provided about the building. Even if no marketing takes place it must be provided before entering into a contract to sell or let.
An EPC is valid for up to 10 years, unless a newer EPC is produced for the property. The property can change hands as many times as required during that peroid.
Local weights and measures authorities in West Wales, usually through their trading standards officers are responsible for enforcing the requirement to have a Commercial EPC on sale or let of a building. See EPC enforcement and fines.
