Even if you just want to advertise your property as being for sale or for rent you will need an Energy Performance Certificate. The notary will ask you for a copy of it before you sell. This is Spanish law and applies not just to Tenerife but all over Spain.
What is an energy performance certificate?
It is a report detailing the overall energy efficiency of a property on a sliding scale from A to G, similar to ratings on electrical appliances when you buy them. You can be fined for advertising your property without a valid certificate. Fines range from 500€ to 3,000€
How do I get it?
You need to have a survey carried out on your property by a qualified assessor. The survey takes from 15 minutes to 2 hours depending on the size and condition of the property. You need to show your name, NIE number, and catastral reference number of the property. After conducting the initial survey the assessor will then produce the report this takes a couple of days.
The costs of the survey, certificate and registration of the certificate is dependent upon the property size and complexity. The larger the property and the more rooms it has, the higher the price. I can arrange this for you from 125€ for apartments under 50m2.
