    Property Tribes launches on-line EPC service



    ​Property Tribes is pleased to announce the launch of our new nationwide on-line EPC ordering service in partnership with EPC On-line, one of the major suppliers of EPCs across the UK.

    It takes less than a minute to order an EPC through your account on our partner site.

    The case then automatically gets assigned to the closest energy assessor who will make contact you within 24 hours to book in an appointment for between 1 and 3 days later.

    If you would prefer the assessor to contact the tenant directly, you can leave a comment to that effect in the "notes" section.

    As soon as an appointment has been made you will receive an automated email keeping you informed of the appointment.

    Within 24 hours after the visit the complete EPC will be uploaded onto your account and you will immediately get email notification.

    The cost of a Property Tribes EPC is £59.00 including VAT.



    Nick Tadd, Co-founder of Property Tribes commented:

    "Property Tribes is delighted to add on on-line EPC booking service as part of our stable of products and services that landlords require on a regular basis.

    EPCs are needed for compliance reasons in all rental properties and are coming into sharp focus with new Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards that come into effect in April this year.

    As EPC legislation celebrated its 10th anniversary in August last year, and EPCs are only valid for 10 years, we are taking this opportunity to urge all our landlords to check their EPCs to make sure that they are still valid and an E rating or above". 

    The central EPC Registers for England & Wales and Northern Ireland recently implemented an ‘Expired Report’ watermark to out of date EPCs and you can check the register to see if your EPC is still valid.



    Tom Harrington, Managing Director of EPC On-line powering Property Tribes EPCs commented:

    "It is great to be working with Property Tribes.  As a landlord myself, I find it a vital destination for property information and I hope to be contributing more to the platform over the coming months.

    Should anyone have any EPC related queries please feel free to post a question and I would be more than happy to help".

    By buying an EPC through Property Tribes, you are assisting in maintaining this site as a free to use community resource as PT will receive a small commission for each sale.  You may like to do this by way of a "thank you" if you have got value from the information freely shared here.



    Thank you in advance if you choose to support this forum in this reciprocal manner.

    a little bit on the naughty side,  but if you look to get any eco or green deal like loft insualtion or cavity wall insualtion.  the greendeal/eco companies come down and do an epc for you for free.  so you can get a little freebie there ☺

    The Association of Residential Letting Agents is warning that “thousands” of landlords simply are not ready for energy efficiency changes coming into effect on Sunday.

    “While the number of properties which are EPC rated F or G has fallen dramatically from 700,000 in 2012, to 300,000 today, many landlords are yet to prepare their properties for the new laws” David Cox of ARLA believes.

    So as promised here's my feedback on FixedFeeEPC:

    The guys at the end of the phone were friendly. Their quoted 'by the end of the week' for my EPCs didn't happen though, but that might have been down to the time of the year and holidays etc. as they farm out the EPCs to a local EPC assessor.

    However, the EPC guy that got in contact with me had some useful answers to my questions and I know a lot more about 'the system' now.

    All in all, worked out well, and the results were uploaded direct to the epcregister.com site within 6 hours or so of the visits so overall a good service and I would use them again.

    Thanks PT for the recommendation.

    Hi Vanessa

    I used the PT EPC offer last week.

    It was easy to order on their website. The managing agent wanted to charge me their "special offer price" £89 compared with the PT EPC £59

    All their stated service level agreements were met. Responses came within 48 hours; booking was made by email as I requested and the guy arrived early! The EPC was uploaded the same afternoon

    I have several properties coming to the end of their 10-year period and I will be using the PT EPC service again

    Thank you!
