From 1 April 2020, landlords can no longer let or continue to let properties covered by the MEES Regulations if they have an EPC rating below E, unless they have a valid exemption in place. New regulations must be applied to privately rented property and they must comply with the 2018 ‘Minimum Level of Energy Efficiency’ standard (EPC band E).
The Government also plans to increase the requirement to a 'C' rating for all new tenancies by 2025, and by 2028 for existing tenancies.
In our session we will discuss the new EPC regulations for landlords. We will also look at challenges, benefits, exemptions, and recommendations so landlords can be informed with all they need to know to fulfil their obligations and avoid any financial penalty.
Finally, we will provide some top tips that can help to increase EPC ratings, plus explore governmental funds that are designed to support landlords.
