From 1st April 2018, under the Energy Act 2011, it became unlawful to issue a lease for residential premises that do not reach a Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES).
Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) rate how energy efficient your building is; using grades ‘A’ to ‘G’ (with ‘A’ being the most efficient). The regulations require landlords of Domestic buildings to have secured an EPC certificate with an ‘E’ rating or higher in order to issue a new lease for a property. However from 01 April 2020 an additional requirement to secure an EPC certificate with an ‘E’ rating or higher for properties with existing leases will come into force.
