Who needs a BER Certificate

If you are offering a property in Ireland for sale or rent, you must by law, provide a BER Certificate for potential buyers and tenants.

This will allow prospective future occupiers of the property, to compare the buildings energy efficiency, to other houses in the area, and in turn, better estimate the cost of future heating and energy bills.

A BER must also be provided before a new home is first occupied.

Commercial properties also require BER Certificates which can be provided by Commercial BER Assessors.
