MEES (Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards)

From the 1st April 2018 all private rented properties must achieve an energy efficiency rating of at least an E on their EPC, to meet the minimum standards. This will initially only apply upon the granting of a new tenancy to a new or existing tenant.

Landlords will need to take action to avoid any non-compliance penalties. If a property does not meet the minimum standards, it will be deemed unlawful for landlords to let or market their property.

Landlords may be able to secure some third-party funding, but it might not be enough to improve their property to EPC band E.
