Strictly Necessary Browser Storage

These values held in browser storage are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to your responses to questions posed by the Tool, or which amount to a request for services, such as entering your postcode to retrieve an EPC certificate. You can set your browser to block setting these values, but some parts of the site will not then work. Values held in session storage will be cleared if you close your browser tab or window. Values held in local storage will persist until local storage is cleared.
