Newbuild houseBefore a building is put on the market the seller or landlord must commission an EPC for the building if no valid EPC exists already for it. A person acting on behalf of the seller or landlord (for example, the estate or letting agent) must be satisfied that an EPC has been commissioned for the building before it is put on the market.

The seller or landlord or a person acting on their behalf must use all reasonable efforts to ensure the EPC is obtained within seven days. A further 21 days is allowed if after using all reasonable efforts the EPC cannot be obtained within seven days. An estate or letting agent may on occasions provide a prospective buyer or tenant with a copy of the EPC. However, it remains the responsibility of the seller or landlord to make sure that a valid EPC has been purchased.

EPC on sale or rent.

When existing buildings are sold or rented out, the seller or landlord must make available an EPC at the earliest opportunity and no later than when a person:

  • Requests information about the building, the time at which the seller or landlord first makes available any information in writing about the building.
  • Makes a request to view the building, the time at which the person views the building. And must give, free of charge, a valid EPC to the person who ultimately becomes the buyer or tenant.

Transactions not considered a sale or rent.

EPCs are required in all instances of sales or rent, except those set out in page 6 (Situations where an EPC is not required). However, not all transactions are considered to be a sale or let. These will include:

  • Lease renewals or extensions
  • Compulsory purchase orders
  • Sales of shares in a company, where buildings remain in company ownership
  • Lease surrender

What is a Domestic Energy Assessor?

Female EPC AssessorA Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA) is a qualified professional who assesses the energy performance of domestic properties in the UK. 

They conduct an energy survey of the property, examining the insulation, heating systems, ventilation, and lighting to provide an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating. This rating informs potential buyers or tenants of the energy efficiency of the property and how it can be improved.

A Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA) is a person who has undergone training in the energy performance of buildings using the Reduced Data Standard Assessment Procedure (RdSAP) methodology. This enables the EPC assessor to produce a domestic EPC.

It is important to note that the DEA method is mainly used for domestic houses which a complete SAP is applied to build new homes.

How is a Domestic EPC Created?

One of our DEAs will need to visit your property and;

  • Examine the interior and exterior of your property.
  • Assess the dimensions of the property as well as any heat loss between walls and ceilings.
  • Inspect your boilers, room heaters and fireplaces.
  • Examine any extensions and the type of building materials used.
  • Inspect the construction of your property.
  • Look at any un-separated conservatories.
  • Inspect the insulation between walls and lofts.
  • Examine the glazing and low energy lighting.
  • The DEA must conduct a health and safety survey – interior and exterior to identify potential threats.
  • The property will be inspected to establish the insulation.
  • Glazing and low-energy lighting will also be taken into consideration.

The DEA will record all this data on a property datasheet or a PDA – this helps download it into a specific computer program that analyses data and produces an EPC.

At Complete EPC, we employ our assessors, who hold all the required qualifications, experience, and accreditation, including Insurance and Disclosure checks, to enable them to produce Domestic EPC’s.

The release of RdSAP 10 in early 2024

What changes have been confirmed in RdSAP 10?

The release of RdSAP 10 in early 2024 marks the first full-scale update to the methodology in four years. The documents currently provided by the BRE and has identified some of the big changes being introduced with RdSAP 10, that could impact the work of energy and retrofit assessors in 2024:

Assessors will be required to measure all windows- This represents a move away from the assumption of typical glazing areas for the age of property. The benefit of this that it will be more reflective of the property being assessed and thereby more accurate.

Additional options for roof rooms– Assessors will be required to take a couple of additional measurements in order to capture the different construction types of any common wall and gable walls.

New age band – Introduction of new age band for properties built from 2023 onwards to show improvement in u-values.

New region added– The Isle of Man has been added as a region alongside England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It has previously never been possible to undertake RdSAP assessments in the Isle of Man before.

Assessors can account for PV diverters and battery storage– When present in the property, assessors will be able to account for PV diverters and battery storage.

Heat Pumps to be recommended more – The government’s low carbon solution of choice, Heat Pumps, will be appearing more often as a recommended improvement measure, under certain conditions e.g. the property has to be fairly well insulated.
