Impact of Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) Regulations

The Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) Regulations were introduced in the UK in 2018 to improve the energy efficiency of buildings and reduce carbon emissions. The regulations apply to both residential and commercial properties that are being let out, and they set a minimum standard for the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of a property. Landlords who fail to comply with the regulations can face financial penalties, so it is important for landlords to be aware of their obligations under the regulations and the financial implications of non-compliance.
