This is a legal obligation for all Landlords and Vendors from 1st January 2009. A Building Energy Rating on all rental and for sale properties is legally required before a Tenancy or Sale Agreement can be put in place.
A BER rating is similar to the energy label for a household electrical applicant. “A” rated homes being the most efficient and G rated the least efficient.
A BER certificate is valid for 10 years from the date of issue provided that there is no material change to the dwelling that could affect its energy performance.
Kearney & Co has formed an alliance with a Wexford company specialising in building energy management and which is fully qualified, insured and approved by Sustainable Energy Ireland (SEI). Our assessors can provide recommendations on BER grants available to property owners.
It is in your interests to be organised for new tenants moving into your property. They may choose elsewhere if you do not have a BER certificate.
