Mandatory energy rating is in place in the ACT and is being introduced into other states progressively.
When it comes in, if you plan to sell your home or rent out an investment property, you will be required to engage the services of an Energy Rating Assessor to calculate an energy rating for your property. The Energy Rating will be required to be displayed on all advertising material for the property.
The Energy Rating is expected to be a “star” rating, with 6 stars being the highest rating. Currently, most uninsulated homes would only achieve a 1 or 2 star rating.
