If you wish to sell or acquire a property in Luxembourg, you are probably wondering what the regulations are regarding the energetic passport of a residence? Through this article, Engel & Völkers Luxembourg answers the questions we are frequently asked.
The energy performance certificate (EPC), also known as an energy passport, is a certification that defines the energy consumption of a home. Thus, even without expert knowledge, the owner or tenant can assess the energy quality of the property.
The issuance of the energy pass is a legal obligation. There is a precise regulation defined by the Grand-Ducal regulation dated 30 November 2007 concerning the "energy performance of residential buildings". However, it does not entail any obligation to renovate the property. The EPC then remains valid for 10 years after the day it is established.
