To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if he will consider amending the requirements for energy performance certificates to be made available when a residential property is put up for sale to include information on floor area and energy usage; and if he will make a statement.
Energy performance certificates already contain information about a dwelling's floor area and energy usage and must be made available to prospective purchasers within 28 days of a property being marketed for sale.
