Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards
As of 1 April 2020, landlords of domestic rental properties in England and Wales with new or existing tenancies are legally required to comply with the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES). The MEES rating is currently set at 'E' or above. It encourages landlords with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of 'F' or 'G' to undertake energy efficiency improvements to their property so that they may continue to let the property.
Our expert assessors are committed to helping landlords exceed minimum standards. We provide professional guidance on enhancing energy efficiency and recommend improvements that can significantly reduce energy consumption.
Our ultimate goal is to achieve optimal results with minimal investment.
So how can we help?
Should your EPC fail to meet the desired rating, rest assured that our assessors possess exceptional skills in analyzing on-site data and hold a deep understanding of EPC conventions. They will promptly identify the most efficient and cost-effective strategies to improve your Energy Performance Certificate rating.
