The client’s property had an existing EPC that was rated G, but they had recently completed works in an attempt to improve the EPC to an E rating or above.
As the April 1st 2023 deadline for all properties achieving an E rating or above had already passed the property could not be advertised until a new EPC had been completed showing they had achieved the E rating.
Clearway were able complete the EPC assessment, however we discovered that the property would only increase its rating to an F. In order to help the client achieve the required E rating some quick remedies were proposed that would help the client raise the EPC to the necessary standards.
As part of our remit, we held the EPC back from completion until the suggested works had been completed to improve the rating. Clearway then successfully submitted the new improved E rating, saving the client the time and cost of another EPC assessment.
