Reporting non-compliance with EPC regulations
It is a requirement of The Energy Performance of Buildings (England and Wales) Regulations 2012 that an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is commissioned within seven days of a property being marketed, and lodged to the register within a further 21 days. Therefore, any property that has been marketed for sale or rent for more than 28 days must have an EPC.
Elmhurst, Energy Assessors and many legitimate agents continue to be frustrated at those agents who persistently break the law by disregarding the requirement for an EPC when it comes to marketing their property.
The association for all EPBD accreditation schemes, PEPA, has introduced a process for independently collating and escalating instances where residential, commercial and public buildings, do not have the required energy certificate.
Neither Elmhurst nor PEPA can undertake enforcement action but we will do all we can to escalate the matter to the home owner, the agent and, if necessary the authorising body to enforce the legislation..
Please note: The legislation in Scotland is The Energy Performance of Buildings (Scotland) Regulations 2008 and in Northern Ireland The Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspections) (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2014
