The government has minimum energy efficiency standards (MEES) for buildings, which are becoming ever more stringent.
One of the most significant points in the latest proposed legislation is that it covers all buildings, not just rental properties.
Domestic premises – It states that where practical, cost-effective and affordable, all domestic properties must achieve an EPC band C by 2033.
Privately rented properties – It states that where practical, cost-effective and affordable, all privately rented properties must achieve an EPC band C by 2028.
Rented non-domestic buildings – It states that where practical, cost-effective and affordable, all privately rented properties must achieve an EPC band B by 2030.
The legislation covers other categories of housing and stakeholder like new builds, mortgage lenders and social housing. Contact us if you want further information.
