1st April 2020 - Must read if you have own a residential rental property
On the 1st April 2020 there will be a change to the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards or MEES for domestic landlords.
Under the Energy Efficiency (Private Rented Property for England and Wales) Regulations 2015, from the 1st April 2018, it became unlawful to let out domestic properties which have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of F or G – to new tenants or a renewal lease to an existing tenant.
This will extend to all privately rented properties from 1st April 2020 – regardless of granting a new lease or lease renewals. The April 2020 deadline will apply to all landlords with private tenants.
We can advise you on the new requirements and prepare a new EPC. Where your dwelling fails to achieve an E rating, we can advise on the most cost effective improvements.
