Regarding the alternative arrangements in Scotland

The Scottish Government endorsed the production of the Single Survey for properties for sale in Scotland around the same time as the old HIPS in England & Wales.  When HIPS were abolished, the Scottish Government decided to retain the Single Survey as part of the Home Report. 

The EPC certificate is an integral part of the Single Survey, but it effectively means that only RICS members can produce Energy Performance Certificates for properties for sale.  As a fully trained, experienced and accredited energy assessor is not considered enough to allow me to produce EPC certificates for properties for sale.  As I said earlier, I am fully authorised to carry out Energy Performance Certificates on properties for rental purposes, or for PV installations but not for properties for sale.

If any of your clients require an EPC certificate for a property for sale in Scotland, they will have to contact a surveying company as this cannot be carried out as a single item by a DEA


House Tree Marketing

Most DEAs will already know about EPC Online. Their strategy is to use all means possible to get the leads and then offer them back to local DEAs at half the price. It is difficult for us to compete with this because we don't have the marketing resources. Well it is not just DEAs that need to look out. I received an email today from their sister company House Tree. they are an online estate agent and they were offering me £100 for each client I could persuade to stitch from their existing estate agent to House Tree. Does anyone else think this company are unethical? We should get together and take these chancers out of the equation. Stuart Halsey Director See Green Ltd
