BER what is it?

A BER is an indication of the energy performance of a home. It covers energy use for space heating, water heating, ventilation and lighting calculated on the basis of standard occupancy.

A BER is similar to the energy label for a household electrical appliance like your fridge. The label has a scale of A-G. A-rated homes are the most energy efficient and will tend to have the lowest energy bills.

Who needs a BER?

A seller or landlord must provide a BER to prospective buyers or tenants when a home is offered for sale or rent. If you are buying or renting a house or apartment, you are entitled to a BER so ask the seller, landlord or agent for it.

Advertising of BER

A person offering a property for sale or rent on or after 9th January 2013, or their agent, shall ensure that the energy performance indicator of the current BER certificate for the building is stated in any advertisements, where such advertisements are taken relating to the sale or letting of that building.

These requirements apply to advertisements, meaning a public announcement in: newspaper, magazine, brochure, leaflet, advertising notice, vehicle, radio, television, internet (including apps and social media) and direct mail.

Who carries out a BER Assessment?

BER assessments are carried out by registered BER Assessors. A person offering a home for sale or rent, or their agent is required to engage a BER Assessor to carry out a BER assessment.

How much does a BER cost?

There is no set fee for a BER and it is a matter for a BER Assessor to charge as they deem appropriate for the particular services offered. We strongly recommend to all people wishing to commission a BER assessment to shop around for the best price and if possible to check references with other clients.

How Long will a BER Remain Valid?

A BER for a building will be valid for 10 years from the date of it being issued, unless there is a material change in the building which could affect its energy performance - for example an extension to the building, a significant change to the building fabric or a change in the heating system or fuel used.
