Our growth is proof of our
relationship with our clients
Starting our journey in 2008 to service the requirements of two key regulations (The Housing Act and The Energy Performance of Buildings Regulations 2007), never did we imagine where the following years would take us.
We have grown a lot as the demand for building compliance becomes mandated in the form of regulations in the UK. Our growth is proof of our relationship with our customers, service offering, delivery, and growing expertise in the area of property regulations and compliance.
Our vision is to be the first choice for residential property service agents and housing associations.
Our target of Net Zero Carbon
Whilst we offer many different property services, one that sits close to our heart is the opportunity to reach a target of net zero carbon homes – a greener UK. Going back to our roots, EPCs are still a core service offering for our team. The question we kept asking ourselves was how we contribute to a greener UK and make it easier for your customers to upgrade their ratings without breaking the bank.
Beyond an EPC
The UK Energy Efficiency Challenge
- The UK government have committed to a net zero carbon position by 2050.
- UK homes to be a minimum of an EPC ‘C’ by 2035.
- UK homes are the third largest source of emissions, contributing 22% of total emissions
- Today between 60-70% of all dwellings are an EPC D or below.
- Upgrading from a D to a C costs on average between £6,000 and £8,000.
- Going from a G to a C is likely to cost more than £30,000.
- The UK’s upgrading bill is estimated at over £125 billion, based on known upgrade costs per property.
- Funding for upgrades is scant and remains the single biggest hurdle to upgrade.
- Between 30-40% of homes in England have an EPC rating of ‘C’ or above.
- In the BTL market, government proposals would see a mandatory EPC ‘C’ rating for new tenancies by 2026.
- Mandatory disclosure requirement for all lenders to report on EPC bands across portfolio by 2023.
- All lenders’ portfolios to be an average ‘C’ by 2030.
