What is the partial EPC report in Wallonia?
The partial report is only drawn up for flat blocks in Wallonia.
Each condominium association must have a partial report for common installations (ventilation, solar panels, heating, etc.) as specified in the government decree. This partial report must be accessible to all co-owners.
The partial report is specific to situations where there are several units (flats, offices, etc.) in the same building. If the building is divided into different units with different owners, and only part of the building is sold or rented out, then a partial EPC report is required.
Here's what the partial EPC report consists of in the context of EPC certification:
Identification of the building and the unit: The report specifies which parts of the building are concerned by the certification.
Data specific to the unit: This relates, for example, to surface area, insulation, heating systems, etc.
Indication of the unit's specific energy performance: As with a full report, the partial report gives an estimate of the unit's energy consumption, in kilowatt-hours per square metre per year.
Recommendations for improving energy performance: These recommendations are specific to the unit in question.
It is important to note that the partial report does not replace the need for an EPC certificate for the building as a whole. It is simply added to the overall certificate to provide information specific to the part of the building that is being sold or rented.
