When do I need a Commercial EPC?
If you want to rent or sell a commercial premises or the building has just been constructed then a commercial EPC will need to be undertaken – this is a legal requirement. The EPC is valid for 10 years. Please note if the building has a significant update, for example change of use, changes to the fabric, significant extension or additions to the property and/or changes to the provision of fixed services then a new EPC must be produced. If there are modifications to the existing premises after the original transaction date then a new EPC should be produced.
The following are exempt from the requirements
Places of worship
Stand alone buildings of less than 50m2
Buildings that will be demolished within two years
