Kavanagh Property Building Energy Regulation Services
Since the 1st January 2009 all existing properties being sold or let are required by law to provide a Building energy-rating-chart Energy Rating (BER) Certificate to prospective buyers and tenants.
The certificate is an energy efficient label for dwellings with a scale of A to G. A-rated homes are the most energy efficient and will have the lowest energy bills where as a G-rated has the most inefficient and will have the highest energy bills.
A prospective buyer or tenant can then take the energy performance into consideration in their decision to purchase or rent a property. Non-compliance with this requirement may result in a €5,000 fine.
