letter to introduce EPC requirement to clients

Dear Mr/Mrs:  “Clients Name”

 Re: “House address”

The government has introduced Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) in Northern Ireland, effective 30 June 2008. This new legislation applies to all existing dwellings which are on the market for sale, irrespective of how long they have been on the market.

The EPC is part of a series of measures being introduced across the European Union to reflect legislation which will help cut carbon emissions and tackle climate change. You can find more about this legislation in the Northern Ireland Executive website or the Department of Finance and Personnel website. By law all sellers of homes and their agents need to ensure that they provide an EPC.

The EPCs are produced by accredited Domestic Energy Assessors following a survey of the property. The survey is limited only to a visual inspection of the property during which the energy assessor will take note only of certain aspects of the property related to energy performance, such as the type of construction, the heating system and heating controls. An energy survey usually lasts 30-40 minutes.

The assessor then will produce the Energy Performance Certificate which, by law, must become part of the sales particulars and be made available to potential buyers with the sales brochure. Failure to provide an EPC could result in a £200 fine for the seller.

Part of the EPC will be a recommendation report. The report will list improvements that you can make and how these will increase the energy rating of your property. You can use this information to cut your fuel bills and improve the energy performance in your home.

As your agent we have the obligation to inform you about the new requirement and assist you to comply with the legislation. Also, in order to provide this service at an affordable price we have our own Domestic Energy Assessors who can provide the Energy Performance Certificates to all our clients. We will ensure your property has an Energy Certificate, that meets the regulation, for £…

We would be grateful if you could contact our office as a matter of priority to make arrangements for your energy assessment.

Yours sincerely,
