Energy Performance Certificates

From 1 October 2008, if you are renting out your property, you will need to provide a certificate to any prospective tenant.

There is no need to obtain an Energy Performance Certificate for an existing tenancy.

Once obtained, a certificate remains valid for up to 10 years.

If a valid Energy Performance Certificate still exists when changing tenants no new certificate is required.

This applies to both private and social sector landlords and tenants.
