Energy Performance Certificates - An Utter Waste of Money!

Nanny requires that when a house if built, sold or rented that the hapless owner obtain and pay for an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). They are hangover from the much derided, and utterly useless, HIPs that Nanny abolished after everyone told her they were bollocks.

Anyhoo, re EPCs, as per The Home Owners Alliance:
"EPCs should not be taken too seriously – the assessment doesn’t take into account how many people live in the property and assessors don’t have access to energy bills.

How thorough is the energy assessment?

  • Assessors are not allowed to be invasive when carrying out a survey. That means, for example, that he or she can’t drill into the walls or ceilings to establish the condition of insulation or even whether the building is insulated at all.
  • Because of this, assessors often have to either assume the worst or go by whatever the property holder tells them."

As far as I can see they are of no use to man nor beast, but do generate a nice little earner for those selling them!

Please feel free to disabuse me of my view!

    Another example of an EU regulation that is widely ignored by most member countries, but enforced in the UK as if some bastard descended from a mountain with the law written on stone tablets
