HELPING LANDLORDS COMPLY WITH MINIMUM ENERGY EFFICIENCY STANDARDS
MEES Compliance, What Commercial Landlords Should Know
The Minimum requirement of a non-domestic private rented building is ‘Band E’ (subject to requirements and exemptions) taken from the EPC.
As of April 1st 2018, landlords cannot grant a tenancy to new or existing tenants if the building falls below ‘band E’. It is therefore important to seek EPC and MEES compliance guidance before tenancy renewal dates.

What Can You Do If Your Property Falls Below the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES)?
If your property falls below the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES), you will need to take action to improve its energy efficiency to meet the minimum standards. MEES regulations require landlords to achieve a minimum EPC rating of E for their properties. Failure to comply with MEES regulations can result in penalties and impact your ability to rent out your property.
To improve your property’s energy efficiency and meet the MEES requirements, you may need to carry out energy-saving improvements such as installing insulation, upgrading heating systems, or improving the building fabric. You can also seek advice and guidance from an experienced Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) provider like KTIC Solutions. Our team of certified assessors can help you produce an enhanced recommendation report that shows the quickest and most cost-effective ways to improve your property’s EPC rating and comply with MEES regulations.
Taking action to improve your property’s energy efficiency not only ensures compliance with MEES regulations but can also result in cost savings on energy bills and make your property more attractive to potential tenants.
KTIC are able to work with you on a consultancy basis to help with the implementation of any improvement requirements that arise from a MEES report. We produce these reports to show specific ways that a property can be improved so that its EPC rating achieves the current minimum requirement of E.
