Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) for UK holiday homes

30 April, 2013energy_performance_certificate

An EPC (energy performance certificate) contains information about a property’s energy usage and typical energy costs. It also has recommendations about how to reduce energy and save money. It’s also a useful tool to help you reduce carbon emissions and appeal to eco-conscious holidaymakers.

Do I need one? If you let out your home for less than four months a year, it’s not a requirement to have an EPC. Similarly, as long as you have a booking contract/agreement/permission to let/licence to occupy, then it is not a requirement.
