Energy Performance Certificates in Lancaster
An EPC or Energy Performance Certificate is a crucial part of any house sale or lettings. Since 2012 it has been a legal requirement for any property being sold or rented to have one of these carried out.
Here at Fisher Wrathall, our team are on hand to help carry out EPCs in the Lancaster and Morecambe area. A qualified Energy Assessor will complete the rating and provide your property with a rating for £60.

What is an EPC?
These certificates assess the estimated energy efficiency of a property, energy costs and carbon emissions. Ratings range for A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and EPCs have to be carried out by a fully qualified Domestic Energy Assessor.
As well as detailing the current efficiency of a property, the document will also provide advice on potential savings. This helps future owners or tenants to see how they could save money and reduce emissions.
Arranging For An Assessment
At Fisher Wrathall we will arrange for an assessor to complete an EPC for you in Lancaster, Morecambe or another area. We charge only £60 for this, reducing your stress and giving you less to worry about.
An energy performance certificate is valid for 10 years. Additionally, as of April 1 2018 all properties let on a fixed term renewal or new tenancy are required to hold an EPC rating of E or higher.
