PEPA Introduces Non-Compliance Report For Assessors & Public

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 HERE.

Although PEPA is not an enforcement authority, they 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 PEPA have received no response within one month, they 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 in due course what action they have taken.

If PEPA have not heard from the TSO within one month, they will contact them and ask for an update.
