There is a fine from between £500 – £5,000 based on the rateable value of the building if an EPC is not available to a prospective tenant or buyer.
An EPC is valid for 10 years
The EPC will also list ways to improve your current rating.
The EPC also includes estimates of the energy the property potentially uses, estimated fuel costs for the property, carbon dioxide emissions and details of the assessor.
