MEES – just one month to go until legislative changes come into force

2nd March 2018

In a few weeks’ time (1st April 2018), changes to legislation – the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) – will make it, in most circumstances, unlawful to rent or sell a commercial property with an energy performance certificate (EPC) rating of F or G.

MEES will apply to all new lettings and lease renewals on or after the 1st April 2018, and the landlord or property owner will need to ensure that the property meets MEES before the lease is granted.

With the legislation deadline looming on the horizon, there are some very important actions that need to be carried out.  Our interactive webinar, on 15th March at 2.00pm, will demonstrate how to prepare for the implementation of MEES regulations and will highlight the key actions. Our live demo will also show you how RiskWise, our online property risk management solution, acts as a hub to record, store, monitor and analyse energy efficiency data and highlight EPC ratings across your portfolio.

Once populated with the Units EPC data, RiskWise also quickly identifies which properties require alterations or improvements, saving valuable time for the landlord. Recording the efficiencies (and inefficiencies) within a property strengthens the landlord’s visibility of risk helping ensure that all of their properties remain actively lettable or saleable.

MEES will contribute towards the UK legislative targets for reducing CO2 emissions for all buildings by 2020 and 2050.
