Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) Next Milestone

As you may be aware, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) introduced the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) for private rented properties in 2016. The standard set out key milestones for landlords to make energy efficiency improvements to their properties.

The next milestone for properties takes effect from 1st April 2020 where landlords must not continue to let a relevant domestic property which is already let, if that property has an EPC rating of Band F or G (unless an exemption applies).
