Mandatory Energy Audits

Beginning June 1, 2009, most Austin homeowners will be required to have an energy audit when selling their home. This affects all homeowners within the city limits serviced by Austin Energy, though there are several exemptions including foreclosure and pre-foreclosure homes, transactions between family members, in probate proceedings, and homes that are less than 10 years old, to name a few. Energy audits costs are capped at a maximum of $300.
