CHOOSE GIO PROPERTY SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR EPC IN ESSEX
The Housing Health and Safety Rating System came into force within the provisions of the Housing Act in April 2006. The European Directive sets out the provisions for the energy performance of buildings and the issue of Energy Performance Certificates. They apply to homeowners, operators and property developers.
At Gio Property Solutions, we specialise in providing Energy Performance Certificates that meet all of the building requirements set forth by the European Directive. As a property owner or landlord, you need to ensure that you have a valid EPC certificate when you start to market your property for sale or rent.
You must get an approved Domestic Energy Assessor to produce the EPC certificate. From 1st October in England and Wales, EPC’s will be mandatory for the sale or rent of all properties. For landlords, this means a valid certificate will be needed for any property as soon as it is being offered to let. The certificate will show the energy efficiency of the property at the time of inspection, the environment impact and what recommendations can be made for improvement.
Stay compliant and trust us to provide you with an Energy Performance Certificate in Essex! We provide you with accurate and reliable EPCs, helping you optimise the energy efficiency of your property.
An Energy Performance Certificate shows the official energy efficiency rating of a property
The EPC displays two official ratings. The environmental impact rating is a measure of a home's impact on the environment in terms of carbon dioxide (C02) emissions - the higher the rating, the less impact it has on the environment. The energy-efficiency rating is a measure of a home's overall efficiency. The higher the rating, the more energy-efficient the home is, resulting in savings on fuel bills. This rating will be valid for up to 10 years.
The Energy Performance Certificate is similar to the certificates now provided with domestic appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines. It is crucial to obtain an EPC when required, as failure to do can result in a fine.
You can be fined if you don’t get an EPC certificate when you need one.
The certificate provides you with a rating for the building, showing its energy efficiency and its environmental impact on a scale from A-G (where A is the most efficient and G is the least efficient), in graphical format. It also contains recommendations to improve the building's energy performance.
The ratings will vary according to the age, location, size and condition of the building.

An EPC certificate gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and it is valid for 10 years.
Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards
From the 1st of April 2018, it will be unlawful to let a property (domestic and non-domestic) with an EPC rating of F or G.
This legislation was put in place to meet obligations to improve our worst performing properties in terms of energy efficiency and to meet the CO2 targets of the UK.
This will affect Private Rental Sector (PRS) landlords when a lease is granted to a new tenant and renewals to existing tenants. Exemptions can apply in some cases.
The property needs to be brought up to the minimum energy efficiency standard of an EPC rating of E or above, and this can be done by undertaking cost-effective home improvements.
Fines may be issued for non-compliance, as well as public notification of the offence. The fine is determined by the severity of the offence and the length of time that noncompliance has occurred for.
