The EPC effect on house prices

BEIS has published analysis carried out in conjunction with the University of Cambridge on the relationship between the SAP rating on the EPC and house prices. The study found that there was a statistically significant relationship between the energy performance rating and sale price. Their results found that there was a 5% premium for properties in EPC bands B/C and a 9-11% discount on F/G properties when compared to Band D properties. This is good news for the UK's energy efficiency targets and would indicate that buyers are becoming more aware of the EPC and its contents.
