Recent amendments to the EPC regulations

December 2018

Under Government regulations all let properties are required to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). This provides a property with a rating from A (most energy efficient) to G (least energy efficient).

Under the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) all let properties will be required to have a minimum EPC rating of E by 1st April 2020.

Prior to the latest amendments, properties could receive an exemption from the MEES regulations for 5 years. Exemptions could be given, for example, if the tenant or a 3rd party (such as the planning authority) refused consent, or that measures to improve the EPC rating could not be made at ‘no cost’ to the landlord.

Last month it was announced that the UK Government had revised its MEES exemption policy.

MEES exemptions registered between 1st January 2018 and 31st March 2019 will now only be valid until 1st April 2020.

Furthermore, the at ‘no cost’ exemption has been removed, and landlords will be expected to spend up to £3,500 to improve a property’s EPC rating. Only if it is shown that upgrades to a property will cost more than £3,500 can landlords register for an exemption.

For more information on EPC regulations for let properties please contact Janet Flintoft or Abigail Wass.
