The Purpose of an EPC
Your Home, EPC Liverpool Merseyside. The purpose of an EPC is to provide information on a property’s energy use and typical energy costs and to make recommendations about how to reduce energy usage and increase efficiency. This can be easily gained with help os EPC-HUB.CO.UK. The Home of the premier EPC provider for Liverpool and Merseyside. It is the responsibility of you, the property seller or landlord to arrange an EPC to show to prospective buyers or tenants. EPCs have been required by law since 2008 (2009 in Scotland) and they are valid for 10 years. If the seller or landlord does not have an EPC, they can be fined £200.
As a result of this there are a number of exemptions to the requirement to have an EPC. For example, a rented room within a house does not need an EPC but a self-contained flat within a larger house that has its own front door and facilities will need one. Listed buildings are often exempt from the EPC requirement if they can’t be modified to make them more energy efficient.
It is possible to view EPCs for any property that has one (unless the owner has opted-out) at the national EPC register.

EPCs were introduced in England and Wales on 1 August 2007 as part of Home Information Packs (HIPs) for domestic properties with four or more bedrooms.
Over time this requirement was extended to smaller properties but when the requirement for HIPs was removed in May 2010, the requirement for EPCs continued. The scheme for HIPs was extended to encompass three bedroom homes from 10 September 2007.
They are a result of European Union Directive 2002/91/EC relating to the energy performance of buildings and transposed into British law by the Housing Act 2004 and The Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspections) (England and Wales) Regulations 2007.
