The energy certificate is a document outlining the energy performance of the building, which defines all the characteristics of the energy performance of buildings - general information about the building, energy efficiency class of the building, information on HVAC systems (heating, air conditioning, quality of the walls, etc.). The energy certificate can be issued only by an authorized person.

With new regulations on the energy certification of buildings. the sellers (owners) of property received the obligation to obtain the energy certificate, and the failure to do so can result in a financial fine. As of 1 July 2013, all buildings (family homes, villas, holiday homes ...) or their separate useful units (apartments and business premises) must have an energy certificate prior to the sale.

If the ad to sell the building, apartment or business premises is published in the media, it must state the energy efficiency class of the property. The buyer of the building or its separate part (apartment) must have access to the energy certificate before signing the sales contract.

Article 29 paragraph 1 of the Act on the Amendments to the Act on Efficient Utilization of Energy in Final Consumption (Official Gazette 55/12) stipulates that a natural person who is the owner of the property will be fined the amount of HRK 10,000.00 if he fails to provide energy certificate of a building or its part that is the subject of the sale. In the event that the property owner does not provide the energy certificate of a building, apartment or business premises during the sale procedure, the buyer may file a complaint with the State Inspectorate.

The new Building Act (Official Gazette 153/13), the provisions of which came into force on 1 January 2014, also stipulates a cash fine of HRK 15,000.00 for a legal entity that is the owner of the property, and HRK 5,000.00 for a natural person owning a property, if their property is advertised in media for sale without specifying the energy efficiency class of the building or its special part (apartment). The same act stipulates the responsibility and the fines for real estate agents, if they sell the property in media without specifying the the energy efficiency class of the building or apartment.

All property owners should address the issue of energy certificates, therefore we invite you to contact us so we can help you to obtain this certificate.
