What is the new Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES)?
Currently, most domestic and non-domestic buildings that are sold or rented out have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) that rates their energy efficiency. The ratings go from A to G, with G being the least energy efficient.
The MEES was introduced in March 2017 by Part Three of the Energy Efficiency (Private Rented Property) (England and Wales) Regulations 2015. In essence, the new law introduces a new minimum EPC standard of E. Once in place, landlords who rent out buildings with F or G energy ratings could face significant fines.
