I have checked the appropriate acceptable EPC register and the property does not have an EPC rating confirmed.

If the property does not have an EPC rating confirmed on the correct register then unfortunately we are unable to offer the customer a green mortgage 

**IMPORTANT- Please check you have accessed the correct country data register **

 

My customer disputes the EPC rating or has an EPC that differs from the appropriate acceptable register?

If your customer disputes the EPC please explain that we only use the government register as our source of information and if the details they have differ from the government website please inform them that they will need to ask the assessor who carried out their EPC to update the Government website – the seller or their estate agent maybe able to help with this.
