According to the Government Regulation of 176/2008. (VI. 30.) the energy certificate is an „official certificate, that contains the energetical abilities of a real estate (individual property, apartment) calculated with a method described in a separate regulation”. The end result of the Certificate is a label similar to the one that anybody could see buying a household appliance before, the difference is, that the purpose of this certificate is to show the energy usage of the real estate.
The scale of the label is similar to the one already in use: the most favorable is the one with „AA++”, while the worst one is listed in the „JJ” category. The regulation marks the „CC” category as benchmark and compares the rest of them to it according to this chart below:
From the 1st of January 2012, all properties must obtain a valid Energy Efficiency Certificate when properties are either sold or rent. In case of a building (e.g. one-family house) a rental contract must be accompanied by Energy Efficiency Certificate. As far as flats the Energy Efficiency Certificate is voluntary until 31st December 2015. Do not give chance to eventual penalties or claims. It has no worth!
The certificates can be done by appraisers registered with the Hungarian Chamber of Engineers or the Hungarian Chamber of Architects. In case of a newly build real estate, if the building was done according to the plans, the certificate can be done according to construction plans during a simplified process, in any other case calculations must be done by a professional. In case of a used real estate, if a certificate of a real estate with similar parameters (eg. apartmant types, houses) is already available, the certificate can also be done in a simplified process. In any other cases, the professional determines the category at a site visit and calculations.
