From April 2018, all new leases
are subject to the government’s 

Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES),
whereby an EPC rated in band F or G may disqualify a property from being leased.

 

More Info on MEES >>

All Properties when being sold or let, require a valid Energy Performance Certificate.

An EPC gives Home Owners, Tenants and prospective buyers an assessment of a property performance rating, in terms of its energy efficiency and environmental impact.

An EPC highlights a buildings energy and carbon emission efficiency grade from 'A' to 'G', where 'A' is the best and with the average to date in the UK being D/E.

In order to produce and upload the certificate to the Government Web site, a trained and qualified Domestic Energy Assessors must visit the property to collect important property data.

 

The information includes a property description, and detail of dimensions, as well as information about heating, ventilation, flooring and the general construction of the property.

 

From this data assessors can use government-approved software to calculate a dwelling's energy performance and can produce that all important EPC.

Domestic EPCs in line with the
requirements of the:

Energy Performance of Buildings
(Certificates and Inspections),
(England and Wales) Regulations.

MEES

 

MEES is a set of Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards set out by the Government for commercially-let properties.

 

From April 2018, new MEES rules mean a landlord cannot renew or grant a new tenancy of longer than 6 months if their property has an EPC rating of ‘F’ or lower. Anything lower will mean the landlord is liable to pay a substantial fine.

The minimum efficiency standard is there for two reasons:
 

 

Although enforced home improvements may not be the most welcome news for landlords, it should be seen by them as a value-adding opportunity. Tenants and property developers will often take the EPC rating of the property into account before renting or buying.
