EPC W14 West Kensington
Due to government legislation, if you intend to sell or rent a property in W14 West Kensington then, depending on whether your property is used for non-domestic or residential purposes, you will need to have either a Commercial or Domestic EPC commissioned prior to its being placed on the market. If you do not manage to prove you have at least ordered an Energy Performance Certificate before you have marketed the property, then you might have to pay a fine of up to £5000. These fines will be issued by Trading Standards Officers and you will still have to cover the expenses of the EPC. The most sensible thing to do is to gain the relevant EPC for your W14 West Kensington property before you market it.
Both Commercial and Domestic EPCs will feature a bar chart which rates the energy performance of your property. Your property will be assigned a position between letters A and G, with A being the most efficient rating and G the least efficient rating possible. This score will be standardised against similar properties in W14 West Kensington so that you can compare how energy efficient your property is. This rating will then enable you to decide whether or not to act on the cost-efficient recommendations provided in the EPC so that you can beat the competition and make your W14 West Kensington property stand out from the rest of the market.
You qualify for the Commercial Energy Performance Certificate if your property is being let or sold to a café, restaurant, dentist, clothes shop etc. If you are selling or renting your property for residential purposes then you are eligible for the cheaper, Domestic Energy Performance Certificate. The only properties exempt from having an EPC are:
- Properties scheduled to be demolished
- Temporary buildings used for less than 2 years
- Places of Worship
- Properties which are deemed hazardous and pose a Health and Safety risk
- Detached, non-residential buildings smaller than 50 m2
If your property does not meet these specifications, then you are legally bound to have an EPC issued for your W14 West Kensington Property.
