EPC & MEES Regulations - All You Need to Know
The Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) are a key part of the strategic approach of the UK government to significantly reduce carbon emissions.
Meeting these targets requires improvement of much of the built stock. As poor EPC ratings are not limited to old or obsolete buildings, MEES requires a change in approach for landlords, tenants and property advisors. There are wide reaching implications in the non-domestic sector that need to be considered. The regulations make it unlawful for a landlord to let a non-domestic building that has an EPC rating of below E until all qualifying improvements have been made.
This practical, in depth course will explain what you need to know about the MEES and how it affects the non-domestic building stock. We discuss enforcement of MEES, impact on valuation of properties, how clients can be MEES compliant and many other topics.
