The Government abolished the HIP (House Information Pack) in 2010 although it was still insisted that an EPC was required for every property coming onto the housing market.
What is the EPC?
An EPC is an Energy Performance Certificate. You will be used to seeing them on a range of products, especially on electrical items such as fridges, freezers and washing machines.
At Alex Smith & Co. we obtain our EPC for you through the HIP Association Group.
Alex Smith & Co. can arrange an EPC on your behalf at the time of instruction, at a cost of £80 (plus VAT) although you are free to obtain your own EPC should you wish.
For any further information on Energy Performance Certificate please contact our office phone 0121 784 6660
