Purchase energy label quickly before the huge price increase

Vereniging Eigen Huis (VEH) calls homeowners on a quick energy label to purchase before its price goes up by about 175 euros. Such energy is valid for ten years and mandatory for anyone who sells his house.

From January 1, 2021 because there are new rules. Now home sellers can still own easy online request an energy label.

It takes less than half an hour. Questions are asked and there is evidence to prompt you for example have really let insulate your floor. Then you pay between 7.50 and 15 euros and you have an energy label.

Next year is quite different. Then you have to come an energy consultant who will assess your home and furthermore makes recommendations for sustainability. And it comes at a price fixed by an average of 190 euros, according to the VEH.

An energy label is compulsory for anyone selling a home. Fails then the seller will be fined 170 euros supervisor Environment and Transport Inspectorate.

Actually entered the new process next month. That was postponed at the request of industry associations because they wanted to be better prepared for the changes. But not adjusted as the VEH would like.

Reason for the VEH to once again bring under attention, because the association is to disagree. “A ‘new’ label does not improve,” said spokesman Hans AndrĂ© de la Porte. “The way of measuring is almost the same, only the property owner is more expensive.”

Moreover, such energy says little, he says. The new energy chasing people only on costs and offers no additional perspective for the sustainability of your home, according to the VEH.

The government is now not going to change the plans. A spokesman Kajsa Ollongren Minister of the Interior announced that the government will indeed be better another way of measuring. “A consultant, the consumption of a home with, can deliver better advice and see what else might.”
