Course Overview

The Minimum Energy Efficient Standards (MEES) Regulations 2015 establish a minimum level of energy efficiency for privately rented property in England and Wales, as required by EA 2011. This means that landlords of privately-rented domestic and non-domestic property in England or Wales must not:

·         grant a new tenancy, or extend or renew an existing tenancy of a privately-rented domestic or non-domestic property on or after 1 April 2018; or

·         continue to let a privately-rented domestic property on or after 1 April 2020; or

·         continue to let a non-domestic privately-rented property on or after 1 April 2023;

 if the property does not reach at least an EPC (ie energy efficiency) rating of ‘E’.

In accordance with the MEES Regulations 2015, since 1 April 2016 a tenant of a privately-rented domestic property has been entitled to ask for the landlord’s consent to make energy efficiency improvements to that property notwithstanding restrictions on making improvements in the lease.

Aimed at landlord & tenant practitioners of all levels, this MEES update will focus solely on the obligations which will be imposed on landlords from 1 April 2018 and onwards in relation to lettings of domestic and non-domestic property, as detailed above.
