B.E.R. Assessment

All Irish properties now require a B.E.R. (Building Energy Rating) certificate prior to them being put up for sale, rental or lease.

Even if you don't intend selling or renting out your property, you will still benefit from getting a B.E.R. Assessment done. You get a report along with the certificate, which highlights where you may make improvements to your property to improve the B.E.R. rating.

Currently, there are grants available, towards a before and after assessment as part of the Home Energy Saving Scheme. This funding may run out, and you will end up footing the bill if you come to sell before the B.E.R. expires (10 years from issue, unless major changes have been made to the property).
