How much is a BER or DEC?
There is no set fee and the advice is to shop around for the best value for money. Make sure that you confirm all the relevant fees in writing prior to commissioning a BER or DEC assessment.
BER / DEC assessors are charged a levy to submit a BER / DEC assessment to SEAI for publication on the national BER / DEC register.
The National Consumer Agency has carried out a mystery shop survey of BER assessors across Ireland. The survey examined the cost of getting a BER certificate from a number of registered assessors for a three bedroom semi-detached house and a two bedroom apartment.
