Energy Performance Certificate
Upon deciding to sell your property, you will need to ensure that you have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) in place before you actively market your home.
An EPC is legally required documentation that reports on the energy efficiency of the property you are selling, rating your property’s energy effectiveness on a scale on A to G. Your EPC must be in place before your put you property on the market, as potential buyers will need to see it at the earliest opportunity. Failure to comply with EPC legislation could result in a fine.

So why is a floorplan important?
There are three main reasons:
- It helps a buyer see how the house ‘works’, and therefore whether it is worth a viewing. Room flow, relative sizes and layout are all factors that a buyer will take into consideration, especially family buyers, and he won’t want to waste time by viewing properties which just aren't suitable for his needs.
- A floorplan can help a buyer to visualise the property after the viewing. This can become useful when he may be considering making layout changes, perhaps knocking down a wall or installing an ensuite, and a floorplan is vital for this kind of thought processing.
- Floorplans can make a house seem larger. It’s very easy when you've viewed a house to forget rooms that you've seen, or overlook a part of the house altogether. This is especially true of 'boxrooms', or areas that aren't being fully utilised, like storage rooms. By showing the house in its entirety on a floorplan, no area will be omitted and as a result, it can even add perceived value.
