  • Planning - You will have your dedicated team for your contract. Your day-to-day contact is your Planning Coordinator.

  • Dispatch of surveys - A surveyor's daily jobs are planned by our dedicated team, ensuring they are environmentally and geographically efficient.


When is an EPC needed?

It is a legal requirement to have an EPC survey for a property before it can be sold or re-let. In most cases, landlords marketing their properties for rent must have an EPC available for prospective tenants to view. Properties rented out in the private rented sector are required to have a minimum energy performance rating of E on an energy performance certificate.

How long does an EPC take?

The EPC inspection will take approximately 30 to 45 minutes and involves a qualified energy assessor visiting the property to gather information relating to the energy performance of the building. We secure a maximum of three day turnaround time to complete an EPC survey.

Who carries out an EPC?

Only qualified and accredited energy assessors are permitted to produce the EPC. Pennington Choices ensure all inspectors are trained to the highest level and run continuous ‘on the job’ training to ensure their knowledge is constantly kept up to date. As part of Pennington Choices enrolment procedures, all assessors must
supply a valid DBS certificate, along with evidence of their qualifications.

Featured Case Study


In the Fuel Poverty (Targets, Definition and Strategy) (Scotland) Act 2019, the Scottish Government sets out its targets that by 2040, as far as is reasonably possible, no household in Scotland is in fuel poverty and, in any event no more than 5% of Scottish Households are in fuel poverty and no more than 1% of Scottish households are in extreme fuel poverty. Warmer Homes Scotland is the Scottish Government’s national fuel poverty scheme which is designed to help households living in or at risk of living in fuel poverty make their homes warmer, more comfortable and cheaper to heat, by installing a range of energy efficiency measures such as insulation and heating systems.
