More barriers to ‘testing the market’
Home owners will be forced to pay more than £200 for a green energy certificate when they put their house on the market. The Government strengthened its commitment to the energy performance certificate yesterday, saying the certificates must be included in the property particulars buyers will see before they even view a home. The certificates, which could cost as much as £350, will give properties an energy rating of between A (best) and G (worst).
