Energy certificate

Energy certificate
The energy certificate is a document that describes the energy properties of the building.

The building inspection is carried out by authorized persons, each in their area of expertise, based on the methodology for carrying out the energy inspection of buildings (a set of actions and procedures for carrying out the energy inspection of buildings, which also contains an algorithm for calculating the energy performance of buildings).

The energy certificate contains general information about the building, its energy class, the document's validity period, information about the persons who participated in the creation of the certificate, the person who created and issued the certificate, as well as detailed information about thermotechnical systems, the energy needs of the building, information about the use of renewable energy sources and an explanation of the content of the document.

Residential and non-residential buildings are classified into eight energy classes according to the energy scale from A+ to G, with A+ being the most energetically favorable and G the least energetically unfavorable class.

The certificate is issued for the building, or its special part, for which it is necessary to use energy to maintain the internal design temperature in accordance with its purpose.

Exempted from the above are;
- buildings used to hold religious ceremonies or religious activities
- temporary buildings with a useful life of two years or less, industrial plants, workshops and non-residential agricultural buildings with low energy needs
- free-standing buildings with a total usable area of less than 50 m2.

The owner of the building, or its special part, is obliged, if it has not been built, to obtain an energy certificate and that;

- before selling, renting, leasing or leasing the building or its special part

Also hand over the energy certificate or its photocopy to the buyer, lessee, lessee, or lessee, and present it to the potential buyer, lessee, lessee, or lessee. While in the advertisement for the sale, rent, lease or leasing of the building or its special part published in the media, the energy class of the building should be specified.

Existing buildings or their independent use units that are sold must have a valid energy certificate handed over to the buyer for inspection before concluding the sales contract.

Individual independent use units of buildings that are rented, leased or leased must have a valid energy certificate available for inspection by the lessee or lessee, before entering into a rental, leasing or lease agreement.
