Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES)

Commercial landlords need to ensure that privately rented properties meet the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES).

The Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) came into force in England and Wales from April last year.

This means that from April 2018, it has been unlawful to grant new leases, or renew tenant leases, of residential or commercial property with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of less than E unless registered as an exemption.

In practice, this will mean that landlords renting any property with an EPC rating of F or G need to carry out works to improve the energy performance rating to an E or above. Failure to do so can result in a hefty fine as local authorities will be able to impose civil penalties for non-compliance based on the property’s rateable value.
