Domestic Energy Performance Certificates (EPC)
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a document that details the energy performance of a building.
If you are selling or renting out your property in Scotland then you need an EPC. This is a legal requirement under the European Building Directive and it is illegal to sell or rent property without one. Your Energy Performance Certificate will remain valid for a period of 10 years. For more information on EPC requirements view our EPC FAQs.
The EPC will detail the energy use, carbon dioxide emission and fuel costs of the building. The energy performance of the building is given a rating on a scale of A-G, with A being the most efficient and G the least efficient. The report will also provide suggestions on how to improve the properties energy efficiency, thus saving money and helping the environment.
With offices across the country in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverness one of our fully qualified assessors will be able to reach you wherever your property is!

Domestic EPC FAQs
What is an EPC?
An EPC is a document which states the energy efficiency of a building based on the standardised way that the building is used. Carbon dioxide (CO2) ratings are shown in bandings from A to G, with A being the least polluting.
The main focus of the certificate is the amount of CO2 which is estimated to be released from the building. The performance of the dwelling is benchmarked against current building standards and recommended cost effective improvements. The certificate must be fixed to the dwelling and will be valid for a period of 10 years.
Why have they been introduced?
The earth's natural resources such as oil products, natural gas and solid fuels are limited and steps must be taken to conserve these commodities. Scientific studies have indicated that these resources also generate emissions such as CO2, which are considered to have a direct contribution to global warming. Making a building more energy efficient through improvements in heating systems, insulation and air conditioning units will lead to a reduction in energy consumption and in CO2 emissions. Scotland, as part of the United Kingdom along with all other EU member states has an obligation under the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) to promote improvement in the energy performance of new and existing buildings.
What information will be shown?
The Energy Performance Certificate should:
- Display an indication of current carbon dioxide emissions
- Provide an indication of potential emissions on an annual basis and also the potential energy use of the building
- Record a list of cost effective improvements
What should I do with the EPC?
It is the responsibility of the building owner to 'affix the certificate to the building' - this is a legal requirement. The EPC should be indelibly marked and located in a position that is readily accessible, protected from weather and not easily obscured. A suitable location could be in a cupboard containing the gas and electricity meter or the water supply stopcock.
When does an EPC have to be produced?
An EPC has to be produced for all properties which are sold or rented from 4 January 2009.
Who can produce an EPC?
In Scotland, there is no specified qualification for energy assessors. The Scottish Government has entered into protocol with professional organisations/institutions whose members already have an understanding of the building/energy sectors. Only members of protocol organisations may produce EPCs for existing buildings.
Do all tenants of rented properties require to have an EPC by the European Deadline of 4 January 2009?
No. All tenants who rent a property on or after 4 January 2009 must be provided with EPC (ie new tenancies). However, landlords would be advised to ensure that they have all of the information necessary to produce the EPC before this deadline.
What does the 'Energy Efficiency Rating' on the EPC mean?
This shows the energy efficiency of the dwelling at present (current) and the efficiency if the cost effective measures were implemented in future (potential). This is based on the information about the dwelling not the way in which it is used.
What does the Environmental Impact (CO2) rating on the EPC show?
This shows the amount of CO2 emissions from the dwelling at present (current) and the emissions in future (potential) if the cost effective measures were introduced.
Do I have to carry out the 'cost effective improvements'?
No, but you may wish to give serious consideration to these possible improvements as not only will they reduce the carbon emissions generated and the energy used, but they could also save you money.
When should an EPC be updated?
An individual EPC will only be valid for a period of ten years. If major works were to be undertaken during this period, building owners may choose to update the certificate, however, this is not mandatory.
Do I have to update the EPC after 10 years?
No. Only if you sell or rent out the property after the 10 year period. The same EPC can be passed to subsequent tenants if it has been produced by a member of a protocol organisation within this 10 year period.
