EPC Legislation - from the 9th January 2013
Our understanding of the new regulation charges are as follows however, please seek advice professional from your EPC provider too.
The regulations surrounding EPC’s has changed again! Guidance has been issued by the Department of Communities & Local Government, it is not definitive, final details are still to be confirmed but we have put together this guidance for our users to ensure that you are aware of the new regulations.

You no longer need to attach the front page of the EPC to your property details. Instead, the EPC rating must be displayed in all advertisements, there is no requirement to use the full EPC, just the graph will do. However, if space is limited, such as in newspaper advertisements then you should include the actual EPC rating, for example D.
In other words, you can just include the EPC rating in your advertising text by manually adding the value at the end of your description, so it is visible in all your press advertising.
An exception to this regulation is listed buildings no longer require an EPC unless they are involved in a green deal arrangement.
