Spanish Energy Performance Certificates- your requirements explained
 

What is the new law in Spain?
As you may or may not be aware from 1st June 2013 a new energy efficiency law for Spanish properties was introduced requiring any property used for rental or for sale after this time to have an “Energy Performance Certificate” also known in Spain as the Certificado de Eficiencia Energetica (CEE), a document describing how efficient the energy consumption is. Each property will be tested and scored on a scale ranging from A to G, with ‘A' being extremely efficient and ‘G' being particularly inefficient. This measure is a European directive aiming to increase energy efficiency in buildings and homes in order to protect the environment, and makes it compulsory for all new and existing properties which come onto the market, whether for sale or for rent, to have this certificate.

How does this affect you and property?
All homeowners who want to sell or rent their property (for more than 4 months) must make this "energy certificate" available to the prospective buyer and/or tenant.

The owner of the home, building, or business premises will be responsible for obtaining and paying for the certificate, which they will need in order to sell or rent their home. In addition to the certificate, each home will also receive a series of recommendations to improve the energy performance of the home and enable it to go up at least one level in the energy efficiency scale. The certificate is valid for 10 years and will only need renewing if modifications or alterations are made to the property within this time.

How to obtain a certificate for your property?
Wincham can organise an energy efficiency certificate for any property owner whether an existing or new client. The process generally involves a visit to the property to take measurements and collect information before drawing up and certifying the report.
