The Green Deal Advice Report

Get Yours Sorted With Us

What is a GDAR?

The Green Deal Advice Report (GDAR) is made up of information collected during your Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) visit - including the EPC document itself. It is an essential requirement for anyone in the market to sell or rent a property. It's valid for 10 years and something you need to take care of.

What's in the GDAR?

As we've said, the GDAR comprises a range of information. It includes: -

  • your EPC, which includes your property’s energy-efficiency rating
  • an occupancy assessment, created by the EPC assessor, that measures how much energy you and other occupiers are using
  • improvements your assessor recommends
  • an estimate of the money you could save on your annual energy bills
  • a statement on whether the improvements will pay for themselves through reduced energy costs

Why is the GDAR important?

As we all know, a greener home can be a cheaper home to run. And if you want to carry out work to increase your property's energy-efficiency rating by making eco-friendly improvements, a GDAR is vital. You'll need it when applying for: -

  • Green Deal Finance
  • Green Homes Cashback
  • Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
  • Home Energy Renewables Incentive and other Govt-backed initiatives
  • Home Energy (Scotland) Loan

IMPORTANT: Applying for a HEEPs or Home Renewable Interest-Free Loan? You may need to claim an RHI from Ofgem - and you'll need an EPC or GDAR. We can advise you and help you claim with a foolproof, properly 'scored' report.
