  1. Read my post, look at EPCs and see the improvements that can be made, the score to increase the ratings. https://www.epcregister.com/reportSearchAddressTerms.html?redirect=reportSearchAddressByPostcode
  2. Double glazing will not make much difference, a cond boiler helps, depends on how bad the old boiler is. No CH heating is the main thing that stops cheap improvements to pass , i.e loft insulation, cavity wall insulation . Solid wall insulation cost is the problem but if the home has modern CH + controls and 300mm loft insulation it should pass. All low energy lighting only adds about 2 points but that might put into E. IMO if old houses have up to date CH they should pass with loft insultion http://www.elmhurstenergy.co.uk/help-support/minimum-energy-efficiency-standards
  3. Cant find the EPC? anyone know the exact address.
  4. Does he read HPC, and what a difference he would have made as an alternative to Carney? The Lords hates BLT. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b06wdcx9/hardtalk-17122015
  5. I will let you into a secret, all EPCs are registered as marketed sale not a marketed sale, rental private or social. This is hidden info, but is put into the data. the Gov know what properties are being rented.
  6. "Estate agents listing properties for rent or sale should be forced to list its floor space", They do, its called the EPC. One use of the EPC that may help. As long as they use an EPC provider that can measure a house. Certain areas of space are not included in the size measured, but the EA will help to explain how the EPC works out total floor area, LOL.
  7. I think this youtube video sums up how Landlords will take it up!!
  8. Why not look at the EPC, this should show total internal area of property, it will include area of garage, if heated. Boarded loft space, will not be included, unless it has a fixed staircase and is a habitable room. Area of conservatory will only be included if open to main house, i.e not separated by external doors. You can download any EPC if you know the post code from the EPC register.
  9. Link to a forum that may be of interest, http://www.homeinspectorforum.co.uk/viewto...f=2&t=14021
  10. From what i have read on this site, everyone is anti labour so whats the difference, you maybe want to have the Tories back so you can have a housing bust. How can anyone look at the people that attend Tory conference's without being sick, i am surprised they even get more votes than the BNP
  11. are you a qualified CS so don't talk about about the construction of houses. Like a lot of people on here is all my own opinion, but unless it is a fact why bother unless you know what you are talking about.
  12. That's the good thing about HIPs it will stop people testing the market, if they need to sell they will have to be more realistic
  13. yes i am one of them mugs, do you know anything about HIPS and EPCs it is a good and right thing to do the RICS are the problem they wanted to keep a monopoly in surveys. a house needs a test like a car needs a MOT the GOV caved in because of VIs you should be backing HIPS and everyone on this site.
  14. utter rubbish from the mail as usual, yes there might be a sshortage ready to do EPCs but there are many in training. it goes into a lot of detail re saving costs on energy waste. and would you by a D or E rated house it will knock prices down with the HIP who needs an estate agent thats why there is much mis information with the HCR included the buyer has everything he needs bar the valuation,
  15. daily mail rubbish it will not cost anything like that. it will enable buyers to see what crap they are buying i cant belive anyone on here does not think its a good idea.
  16. do you know how many people are in training? the worry is that there will be to many. HIs have been let down no HCRS as its not mandatory. most of the press have no idea or the public of the benifits of a HIP. is the cost of a few hundred quid going to make any diferance when your house has doubled in value. there will be a lot going on market before said deadline. that should be good.
  17. this must be a good thing, no one will be marketing there house just to see how much money they have made. also EPCs who wants to buy a F rated fridge.
  18. do u know what u are talking about, why dont you marry her both the same make stupid remarks with pure ignorance
  19. there are a few training providers out there why not phone learn direct it is a watered down version of the HIs course but not a walk in the park try also homeinspectorforums.
  20. should i be worried about my savings then? i may as well put it in property.
