“I don’t know if I have an EPC” is something I regularly hear.
It is really easy to find out, you just need the address details to search the national database of Energy Performance Certificates. But how do you do it?
Go to the EPC Register
Select “Retrieve Report Using Property Address”
You need to accept the terms and conditions
Put in your postcode and press “Search Reports”
You will then see a list of all the addresses in this postcode that have had EPC lodged. If your address isn’t there then an EPC does not exist. Click on your address and it will take you to another page where you will need to click on “show reports”
You then get the choice of viewing in English or Welsh
Your EPC will now be downloaded as a .pdf file which your computer should open automatically.
Save a copy of your EPC so you don’t have to go through this again.
