|Energy Performance Certificate|
|08 February 2018 |
This came into force on the 1st of June, 2013. It is obligatory for all sellers and lessors who are advertising their property for sale or rent. If you do not hold an energy performance certificate then you will be fined.
The energy performance certificates are issued by qualified professional technicians or architects who are authorised to undertake building projects and thermal installations for buildings. They have to visit the property to take measurements and collect information about the property before drawing up and certifying the report.
The certificate costs Up to 100m2 - 155€ + IVA, Between 100m2-200m2 - 195€ + IVA, Between 200m2 - 300m2 - 215€ + IVA, Up to 400m2 - 280€ + IVA paid for by the owner of the property
You will not be able to sell your home without the energy certificate; it will be requested at the notary. Each regional registry can check if the property has a registered energy performance certificate by looking up the catastral reference.
Your assessor will give you the certificate once it was been fully registered and approved. You can also download from your client log in once it has been approved. 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.
You will need an EPC before advertising for sale or rent. Fines can be applied if your property does not hold an EPC when being advertised for sale or rent.
