The Energy Performance Certificate: What is it and why is it mandatory to have one to sell a property in Spain?

Since 2013, the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) has been a mandatory requirement in Spain for the sale or rental of a property.

But what exactly is the EPC and why is it important?

The EPC is a document that rates the energy efficiency of a building or apartment. It is an instrument that provides information on the energy consumption and CO2 emissions of the property. 

This document is presented in the form of an energy label, ranging from letter A (most efficient) to letter G (least efficient).

The EPC is important because it allows buyers or tenants to know the energy efficiency of a property, which helps them make an informed decision. 

The EPC can also help owners improve the energy efficiency of their property, which in turn reduces energy consumption and CO2 emissions.

To obtain an EPC, a specialized technician must be hired to perform an evaluation of the property. The technician evaluates factors such as the orientation of the property, insulation, lighting, heating, and air conditioning, among others.

If you want to sell or rent a property in Spain, a valid EPC is required.

The document must be registered in the government database and include information on the energy consumption and CO2 emissions of the property, as well as recommendations for improving its energy efficiency.

In summary, the EPC is an important document that rates the energy efficiency of a property and provides valuable information for buyers or tenants. It is also a mandatory requirement for the sale or rental of a property in Spain.
