The Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) Regulations require a minimum EPC rating of ‘E’ from April 2018 before leases are granted, and from 2023, before they are allowed to continue.
The MEES regulations have significant implications for landlords who wish to let space, and for tenants who wish to sub-let. Our quick reference MEES guide, updated in line with the non-domestic guide published by the government in February 2017, will help you learn more about the key implications.
With the 2018 trigger date fast approaching, our advice is to identify and quantify the risk to value in your portfolio as soon as possible. We have helped a number of organisations implement mitigation strategies including a review of their leases and highlighting the most cost-effective way of upgrading any F or G rated stock.
We can also help you:
- Understand what these could mean for you and your business specifically
- Achieve compliance with these regulations
