Portland home-sellers must disclose home energy score under new city mandate

January 8, 2018View for printing

A requirement that Portlanders selling their houses disclose the results of a home energy audit took effect this week, though it appears to be off to an uneven start.

The requirement, approved by the Portland City Council in 2016, is intended to give buyers a better idea of their maintenance costs in the long run. It's modeled off programs in cities including Austin, Texas; Berkley, California; and Boulder, Colorado.
