Commercial EPC

Are there any circumstances where I don’t need an EPC?

EPCs are not required before the construction of a building is completed. Nor are thy required on the sale, rent or construction of:

  • places of worship;
  • temporary buildings with a planned time of use less than 2 years;
  • stand alone buildings with a total useful floor area of less than 50m2 that are not dwellings;
  • industrial sites, workshops and non-residential agricultural buildings with low energy demand.
  • As the purpose of EPCs is to enable potential buyers or tenants to consider energy performance of a building as part of their investment, transactions which do not involve a new owner or tenant may not require an EPC. Examples might include:

    • lease renewals or extensions to existing tenants
    • compulsory purchase orders
    • lease surrenders.
