Renewing BER Cert.

My current BER certification (D2 rating) is valid until 2024. I recently carried out some upgrades to the property including new gas boiler and double glazing. I intend placing the house on the market sometime next year. Can I apply for a new BER to be carried out before the expiry date of the existing one? I presume the new improvements will result in a higher rating.

of course you can... thats whole point of the certification system ie you get rewarded for upgrading the house.

you need to go through the same process again.. a BER assessor will survey the property and produce the cert

On redoing the survey, if you go back to the person who did the original they MIGHT offer a small discount as they should have their previous notes which could save them some time. Potentially only a couple of euro but it all helps.

I may indeed do that although I was under the impression that the fees charged are not at the discretion of the individual assessor but are laid down by SEI.

Yes because BER reports are unreliable and don't mean anything. OP if you want a good BER to help a sale learn to use DEAP and go through your original report. Learn the parts of your house, their area, their U value, their thermal bridges, solar gain etc. Then you can see if your new assessor is fleecing you because many do.
