EPC W7 Hanwell

If you are about to market a property in the W7 Hanwell area, are you aware of the legislation which requires you to have a valid EPC for your property? Originally a part of the Home Information Pack (HIP) but now a legal requirement in its own right, the Energy Performance Certificate is required for all residential and commercial properties being put on the market for either let or sale. Failure to comply with this legislation will result in a fine of up to £5,000 issued by Trading Standards Officers, as well as the responsibility and costs involved of obtaining an EPC.

A residential or domestic EPC will feature a bar chart detailing the energy efficiency rating of your property. This is standardised against other properties of the same type. The property will then be placed somewhere between grades A and G on the chart, with A being the most efficient a property can be and G the lowest efficiency possible. There will also be a list of recommendations for improvements to be made to your W7 Hanwell property and these will be cost effective methods which you could implement if desired.

An EPC, as well as being a legal requirement at the point of marketing your property, can be performed at any time and is available whenever you decide to commission one. The advantage of doing this when you don’t intend to market your property in the near future is that you will find out how much energy is being lost and how much money you are losing as a result. The suggestions serve as a good guideline for simple improvements so that you ultimately save money on your energy bills.

If you own a commercial property in W7 Hanwell, then you will be required to obtain a non-domestic EPC which features a more detailed report due to more in-depth testing being performed. Should you be letting or selling a restaurant, café, computer hardware shop, dentist, clothes shop etc. then you are required to obtain the commercial EPC.
