314. Energy efficiency requirements of building regulations and energy performance certificates.

Building regulations contain energy efficiency requirements which apply, with certain exceptions, to the erection of, extension of and carrying out of work to any building. These requirements are discussed elsewhere in this work1.

The seller or the prospective landlord must make a valid energy performance certificate available free of charge to a prospective buyer or tenant of a building at the earliest opportunity, unless the building in question is to be demolished and redeveloped. Energy performance certificates are discussed elsewhere in this work
