As a landlord are you aware of MEES? Do you know what it is? and is your property compliant?? read on to find out more ....... The Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) came into force in 2018 and from 1 April 2020, ALL residential rental properties with existing tenants in place must have a minimum Energy Performance Rating (EPC) of E or above...eek!

So what if my property is rated F or below?? Well as the landlord, you must pay out to make it more energy-efficient! 

However, if the cost of improving the property to band E and above is greater than £3,500, you can register an exemption for 5 years, but you still need to do what you can up to the value of £3500.  

Additionally, exemptions are assigned to the landlord rather than the property, so if you purchase a new property that has been registered as exempt, it will still need to be re-registered under your name.  

You can register for an exemption here:
