Since June 1. 2013 all Mallorca Properties, for sale or for rent (long term rental from 4 months) are committed to have an energy certificate.
The Energy Certificate gives information on the energy needs of the particular property and should also include a letter of recommendation to improve the energy efficiency. This energy certificate shall be valid for 10 years after issuance und can be issued by an architect, an engineer or a foreman (technical architect) with relevant educational and professional qualifications.
If you are planning to sell or to rent out your Mallorca villa or your Mallorca apartment, it is imperative to have an energy certificate for your property. If you do not have an energy certificate when you rent out or sell your property on Mallorca, there may lead substantial fines of up to 3.000,- Euro.
Subdivision of the energy efficiency classes
Before an energy certificate is issued, your property will be checked on their energy efficiency. The most attention will be put to the insulation, ventilation, heating and lighting. Finally, an efficiency level between A and G (see chart) assigned as you already know it from your household appliances.
Properties whose values are close to the energy efficiency class A, can consume up to 85% less energy than the low efficiency class G. This energy classification increases the market value of a property on Mallorca (be it purchase / sale or rent) crucial.
