Default Energy certificate

Has anyone or do you know of anyone who got an Energy Certificate recently? I was quoted EUR250 for a 2T semi in Lagos. I thought that was rather steep considering I paid £75 for a 3 bed semi in London. Both of them are valid for 10 years.

Not recently but in Dec 21 I paid €313 for mine, 4 bed town house. That was €200 for the surveyor, €55 to Adene (the official body) and 23% IVA on both.

I got it through the estate agent for speed so not particularly competitive I guess.

Thanks for the reply. Money for old rope. I am just amazed that London is so much cheaper. Makes a change I guess.

We paid 250€ in 2015, when we sold in the Algarve.

T4/5 on three floors.

Maybe they're not doing it very thoroughly?

Last time I employed a plumber in the UK (late 90s / early 00s), it was about 80 quid for the callout fee, plus whatever it cost to fix the problem.

I guess a surveyor of whatever speciality probably has the edge, fee-wise, over a tradie

I'd be surprised if a proper job on both sides costs less in London.

Algarve, though, eh? Who knows what goes on down there?

When we sold up last year think it was circa 290 Euros.

Silver lining is that it is deductable from any profit on selling!
