An EPC is required whenever a property is:
to be sold
to be rented
You must order an EPC for potential buyers and tenants before you market the property to sell or rent.
In Scotland, you must display the EPC somewhere in the property, eg in the meter cupboard or next to the boiler.
An EPC contains:
information about a property’s energy use and typical energy costs
recommendations about how to reduce energy use and save money
An EPC gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and is valid for 10 years. Since 2018 all properties must meet (MEES), Minimum energy efficiency standards
