The Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) is almost upon us and will see Landlords charged with the requirement to bring their rental property to a minimum EPC rating of E. Property with F and G rating will effectively be banned from the rental market.
Key deadlines for Landlords
– from 1 April 2018, landlords will no longer be permitted to grant new tenancies, or extend/renew a tenancy to an existing tenant if the property has an EPC rating of band F or G (as shown on a valid Energy Performance Certificate for the property).
– from 1 April 2020, landlords must not continue letting a rental property which is already let if that property has an EPC rating of band F or G.
