We are committed to providing buyers and tenants a full service. As at June 1st 2013, property energy certificates will become mandatory for any property being sold, and any property being rented for more than 4 months.
The Notary will make the request to each interested party. In accordance of the Real Decreto 225/2013, properties for sale and rent must show their energy efficiency labels in all versions of advertising.
We have decided to make the whole process much easier for our clients. We recommend a company called ARKItasa for the seller, or landlord, to request an energy certificate.
