Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) Further update

The Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) that came into force on 1 April 2018 in England and Wales now apply to any new or renewal leases that are granted in respect of commercial property. It is now unlawful for landlords to let premises that have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) with a rating below E without carrying out works to improve the energy efficiency of the building and to bring the EPC rating up to an E or better, unless the landlord obtains an exemption from the local authority. Please read the information carefully and contact your legal or financial adviser if you have any queries.
