Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard Regulations (MEES)

From the 1st April 2018, The Energy Efficiency (private rented sector) (England and Wales) Regulations 2015, commonly referred to as MEES, come into effect.

These regulations will make it unlawful for commercial properties with an F or G Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating to be let. Furthermore, from the 1st April 2023, landlords may not continue to let a non-compliant commercial property.

Recent data has shown that potentially up to 50% of all commercial properties are either non-compliant or are rated D and E and these would be considered to be in the danger zone when new EPCs are required.
