Our Story

Growing up in a very old, cold and damp house in the heart of rural Norfolk inspired the passion to help with the issue of fuel poverty, helping people to reduce their energy bills and consequently carbon footprint.

The EPC is a starting block towards understanding and improving energy costs in your home.

We offer an EPC service for domestic properties – sales, rentals, renewables and probate transactions and we pride ourselves in fast turnaround of certificates and great customer service. We are ECMK assessor accredited and carry the ABBE and Trustmark logos.



There is a legal requirement  for an EPC whenever a property is rented or marketed for sale, including holiday lets. You must order an EPC for potential buyers and tenants before you market your property to sell or rent.

An EPC is also required for probate property sales as well as some renewable energy installations with applications for a feed in tariff. (FIT)

The new legislation means that as from 2018 all properties rented out in the UK must have achieved an EPC energy rating of E or above. It is important to be aware that you could be fined if you have issued a new tenancy on a property that does not reflect this rating.

MEES sets out minimum energy efficiency standards for properties. Current Government long term energy performance standards for privately rented homes in England and Wales are aiming for as many as possible to be upgraded to EPC Band C by 2030 where practical, cost effective and affordable.

Customer Testimonials

We used Ruth at Skylark to carry out an EPC rating as she was local and we needed it done swiftly as we had to get it done quickly due to house sales.

Safe to say that we weren’t disappointed with the service we received. the survey was done at a convenient time for ourselves and also was sent through to us via email not too long after the actual survey was completed making it quicker for us to pass on to  the relevant people. I would not hesitate to recommend Ruth enough and would use Ruth again if required in the future.

Oliver Whitmore

We were looking for somebody to visit our home and make an assessment for an EPC for our RHI application. Ruth Matsell was recommended to us.

Ruth was extremely pleasant and professional and informed us of everything she was doing. Within a short time we received our certificate and successfully applied for the RHI. We would be happy to recommend Ruth.

Elaine and Graham Smith Felthorpe

Dear Ruth, I would just like to thank you for my recent EPC that you kindly done for me. I just wanted to say a few words in thanks: 

 The service provided for my recent EPC in Northampton was extremely professional and the information that you gave me was uncomplicated, clear and accurate. Customer service is a must for me and your company are certainly second to none. I would highly recommend you to anyone without hesitation. 

 Once again, Thank you
