Prospective home sellers in Spain are often in doubt regarding the need for an energy certificate. According to the report, European regulations have made it compulsory for anyone looking to sell or rent a property to obtain an official document attesting the energy efficiency and emission levels of their property.

The online resource explains that, based on the latest European standards, all homes on the real estate market need to have an energy certificate stating their energy consumption and carbon dioxide emission levels. Properties are rated on a scale from A to G, with A being the most energy-effecient and G the least. This is applicable to both new and existing houses. However, certain properties such as historic buildings and monuments and temporary constructions are not required to have an energy certificate.

Prospective home sellers will find an overview of the procedures required to obtain an energy certificate. The report states that certificates must be issued by professionals such as architects and engineers. The price of the certificate varies depending on property features and local market competition, with averages for a standard 100 m2 apartment ranging from 80 to 150 euros.

Costa del Sol home sellers who choose to be represented by Andalucia Realty receive a free energy certificate.

The latest report is part of the agency’s commitment to offering professional services and resources for home buyers and sellers in Marbella, Benahavis, Estepona and other areas on the Costa del Sol.
