Existing Buildings (dwellings and other buildings) when offered for sale / lease on or after 1st January 2009 must have a valid BER. A BER is valid up to 10 years provided that there is no material change to the dwelling that could affect performance.
A Building Energy Rating (BER) Certificate is an indication of the energy performance of a home. A BER certificate is accompanied by an Advisory Report which identifies how you might improve the energy performance of your home.
BER is the calculated energy use for space and hot water heating, ventilation and lighting based on standard occupancy. A BER is similar to the energy label for a household electrical appliance like your fridge. The label has a scale of A-G. A-rated homes are the most energy efficient and will tend to have the lowest energy bills.
A BER is compulsory for all homes offered for sale or rent. A BER is also required before a new home is occupied for the first time.
There are exemptions for certain categories of homes, for example, protected structures.
Advertisements must include BER details when a home is offered for sale or rent.
We would be happy to provide you a list of local BER Assessors to carry out the necessary assessment for your property. Please contact our office for details.
