About New Build EPCs
EPCs are not only required for buildings being sold or let, but are also required when a building is constructed, this is relevant for Domestic as well as commercial properties.
When is an New Build EPC required?
When a building being constructed is physically complete, it is the responsibility of the person carrying out the construction to give an EPC and recommendation report to the building owner and to notify building control that this has been done. Building control will not issue a certificate of completion until they are satisfied this has been done.
