EPCs tell you how energy efficient a building is and give it a rating from A (very efficient) to G (inefficient).

Energy Performance Certificate

Much like the multi-coloured sticker on new appliances, EPCs tell you how energy efficient a building is and give it a rating from A (very efficient) to G (inefficient).  They let the person who will use the building know how costly it will be to heat and light, and what its carbon dioxide emissions are likely to be.  The EPC will also state what the energy efficiency rating could be if improvements are made, and highlights cost-effective ways to achieve a better rating.  Even if you rent your home, some improvements noted on the EPC might be worth your while – such as switching to more energy-efficient light bulbs.  Once produced, EPCs are valid for ten years.

Green Deal Advice Report 

Saving improvements to your home and find the best way to pay for them.  The improvements that could save you the most energy depend on your home, but typical examples include:

• insulation – eg solid wall, cavity wall or loft insulation
• heating
• draught-proofing
• double glazing
• renewable energy generation – eg solar panels or heat pumps

Floor Plans 

State of the art 2D or 3D Floor Plans that can be used as a good marketing tool to be viewed by prospective buyers or tenants when marketing your property.  The images can be in Colour or Black & White and will be produced in the form of a JPEG, PNG or PDF.

Photographs

Probably one of the most important aspects when marketing a property and something that shouldn’t be overlooked.  Care and time will be taken to produce high quality photographs in the form of a high resolution JPEG suitable for all kinds of marketing literature, taken by an experienced individual who’s taken several thousand photographs of hundred’s of properties.

Legionella Risk Assessment

Legionella is a bacteria which lives in water systems. When breathed in, water droplets containing the bacteria can cause Legionnaires’ Disease.  New legislation states that landlords need to have a “competent person” undertake a risk assessment and identify if there are areas in which water could lie for long periods of time (the main risk factor for growth of the bacteria).  There are fines for landlords who don’t comply with the regulations. Legionnaires’ Disease can be fatal, and landlords have a legal obligation to ensure that their tenants and others visiting the property are protected.
