You may have heard about the new law that has come into force recently regarding Energy Certificates.
This type of certificate is drawn up and registered by an architect that has to take certain measurements and collect information to describe how energy efficient the property is. It assigns an energy rating on a scale which ranges from “A” to “G”.
It is the vendor’s liability to produce this certificate when selling their property to the new owners before completion.
The certificate is valid for 10 years. This means owners will not have to obtain a new certificate during this period unless they renovate or change the property in any way.
