Previously, an owner or landlord was required to obtain a BER Certificate but this was only made available when sought by the buyer or tenant.  The new regulations mean that the BER rating which grades property from A to G, with A being the most energy efficient, is prominently displayed .

Failure to comply with the regulations may result in a fine of up to €5,000.
