EPCs and MEES
Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)
An EPC tells potential buyers and tenants about the energy performance of a building. They can then consider energy efficiency as part of their investment or business decision to buy, or occupy, the building.
EPCs are based on calculated energy efficiency for a building taking into account a number of variables. The ratings range from A to G, where A is very efficient and G is the least efficient. All certificates come with a recommendation report (RR) which includes advice and suggestions on improvements to save energy and reduce carbon emissions.
Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES)
From 1st April 2018 landlords of non-domestic private rented properties (including public sector landlords) may not grant a tenancy to new or existing tenants if their property has an EPC rating of F or G (shown on a valid EPC for the property).
From 1 April 2023, landlords must not continue letting a non-domestic property if it has an EPC rating of F or G.
