We believe it is important that prospective purchasers should have information about the energy performance of homes they are considering buying before they submit offers. In order to raise consumer awareness and choice and environmental standards the information needs to be available at the beginning of the process rather then once prospective buyers have already invested resources and made commitment to the sale.
