Will Energy Performance Certificates Affect You?

With climate change so prominent in today?s politics, the government has introduced new legislation that will affect commercial property transactions throughout the UK, including practice purchasing.

The Dental Practice Consultancy Service (DPCS) team wishes to inform dentists about Energy Performance Certificates.

From the 1st of October, all premise owners or landlords must provide tenants with an Energy Performance Certificate produced by an accredited energy assessor. These are valid for 10 years and must be displayed whenever a viewing of the property takes place or written information is provided.

When a contract to sell or let is entered into, the Certificate must be furnished, with financial penalties ranging between ?500 and ?5,000 for non-compliance. The owner or landlord of the building is responsible for ensuring that a Certificate can be produced.

Offering a comprehensive range of services, DPCS provides expert assistance from experienced dental property consultants. Helping you with Practice Valuation, Sale & Purchase, Practice Contractual Agreements, Financial Health Check and Practice Income Analysis, DPCS can help you with the biggest decisions in your career.
