Domestic BER Certificates

From the 1st of January 2009 a BER certificate is compulsory for all homes being sold or rented. If you are buying or renting a new house or apartment now, you are entitled to a BER

All new homes (even when not for sale) must have a BER certificate before they are occupied as detailed under S.I. 666. Please vist Department of the Environment Building Standards page

A BER for a building will be valid for 10 years from the date of its being issued, unless there is a material change in the building in the meantime which could affect its energy performance – for example an extension to the building, a significant change to the building fabric or a change in the heating system or fuel used.

Grant are available under the Home Energy Saving Scheme.
