Energy Performance Certificates
We provide Energy Performance Certificates for properties being rented or sold. The cost for all Medway properties is from £50 inclusive with certificates ready the same day. We have appointments at weekends or early mornings – to fit your busy schedule.
Is your estate agent trying it on? £120 is being quoted for an EPC by some local estate agents according to our clients. Save £££ with us. Our certificates are emailed back to you the same day!
We can provide you with an EPC at short notice – possibly today! The site visit takes 1 – 2 hours.
For free advice or an appointment call 01634 799115.
We are local Medway assessors and have been trading since EPCs were introduced three years ago. To keep our costs down we mainly survey properties in the Medway area from our base in Chatham Kent. Our clients tend to prefer a local service from local people they can trust. Many say that their agent tried to charge them £100 or so for an EPC. Others just want a rapid, no nonsense service.
We are not some remote company taking a cut and then trying to find a local assessor.
Our EPCs can be emailed out the same day to yourself and your agent – or posted within 24 hours. The email format is PDF and so you can make as many copies as you like.
Energy Performance Certificates are required when homes are offered sale or rental. We provide EPCs at low cost in the Medway Towns – Strood, Rochester, Chatham, Gillingham, Rainham and suburbs. £50 applies to Medway Area only. For other areas please phone for a quote.
Our Assessors are fully accredited under the Government Approved NHER Assessors scheme as a DEA and OCDEA.
About the appointment
Appointments take typically 1 hour. The Assessor will:
- Take measurements and make observations about the structure,
- Examine the loft space if there is one
- Examine the heating and hot water systems
- Take photos ( these are retained for audit purposes and are not published at all )
- Enter details into software which generates the EPC (RdSAP )
We can e-mail any Estate Agent directly and yourself at the same time. This is the greenest option as it saves on postage, paper, printing etc.
What are EPCs?
EPCs are a European (EEC) Requirement under the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive – the remainder of the unpopular HIPS pack has now been scrapped. An EPC is valid for up to 10 years unless you make changes to your home.
