First offi cial information on inspection processes for Energy Performance Certifi cates (EPC)

Communicators from the Economy department of Madrid’s Goverment have recently published results of the fi rst inspections on Energy Performance Certifi cates in the Spanish newspaper Cinco Días on the 23rd February this year.

The information released show us the results of the inspections carried out by inspectors of the Department of Industry, Energy and Mines of Madrid’s Government, showing that a 40% of the inspected cases were due to falsifi ed documents in relation to the Energy Performance Certifi cate, another 40% revealed properties that didn’t have the obligatory EPC prepared in the process of marketing or leasing the property and the fi nal 20% were actions against the unqualifi ed “technicians” that signed the documents, who did not meet the legal requirements to carry out the necessary surveys (as only fully registered architects and engineers are able to sign the relevant documents).

The Department of Economy further disclosed that of all the cases presented 76% have already been concluded, resulting in 66% of the offenders having been fi ned, while the remaining 24% of cases are still pending. The amount of the sanctions was 601€ to lease or market a property without the mandatory Energy Performance Certifi cate, whilst the fi nes for illegal technicians or falsifi ed Energy Performance Certifi cates or ratings relating to the property ranged from 2,000 to 6,000€.

With regards to the Energy Performance Certifi cate ratings, the communication offi ce informed that 82% of the properties received one of the lowest ratings.

Please note that we haven’t as yet heard of any inspections in the Quesada area and so far the only news has been about complaints between agents for property listings without their EPCs.
