Are You Ready for MEES?

The Association of Residential Letting Agents have warned that a huge number of landlords are not ready for the energy efficiency changes coming into effect on Sunday 1st April. The legislation states that as of the 1st new lets, to include renewals, will be required to comply with minimum energy efficiency standards, or MEES.

The legislation stipulates rental properties must have a minimum EPC rating of a band E; this is to ensure that tenants have more energy efficient and better insulated rental homes. Any landlords with properties with an F or G band EPC rating will have to make improvements to the property and have a new EPC compiled before they are able to let the property or renew an existing tenancy.  Failure to do so could result in fines of up to £4,000 or loss of rental on an empty property that can’t be let until improvements are made.

Goadsby have been increasingly busy ensuring they keep their landlords up to date and compliant and Kate urges any landlords looking to let their properties to contact her for advice and to discuss how Goadsby can ensure they remain legally compliant. Kate can be contacted on 01202 432188 or kate.west@goadsby.com
