Commercial Energy Performance Certificates.
When your business is offered for a sale and a property is included within the sale, a Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is normally required should the property not be owned by the Limited Company being sold.
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is the energy efficiency rating of your business premises. This is usually required, as part of the seller's pack, in order to sell your business.
To check if there is currently an EPC for your property please visit https://www.epcregister.com/ where you can retrieve a copy of any current Energy Performance Certificate.
You can get an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) from a commercial energy assessor (also known as Non-Domestic Energy Assessor)
An EPC Certificate is valid for 10 years and must be applied for within seven days of marketing a business for sale, and received within 28 days of the marketing process beginning.
The EPC will be normally required by your solicitor to complete the sale of your business.
Should you require clarification of any exemptions you are referred to your local Trading Standards Officer.
