PEPA is introducing a new service for energy assessors and members of the public to report instances of non-compliance with the need to have a valid EPC in respect of properties marketed for sale or let, and for public buildings to display a valid DEC.
To use the service please complete the on-line form available below.
Although PEPA is not an enforcement authority, we will take meaningful steps to try and address reported instances of non-compliance by:
- Writing a polite letter to the owner of the property/public authority, pointing out that they are non-compliant with EPBD regulations in respect of EPCs/DECs (as appropriate) and copy in the marketing agent (if applicable)
- If we have received no response within one month, we will send a copy of the letter to the relevant Trading Standards Office (TSO), again copying in the marketing agent (if applicable), and asking they advise us in due course what action they have taken.
- If we have not heard from the TSO within one month we will contact them and ask for an update.
