What is the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES)?

The Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) was introduced in March 2015 by the Energy Efficiency (Private Rented Property) (England and Wales) Regulations 2015. The MEES Regulations originate from the Energy Act 2011 which contained the previous coalition government’s package of energy efficiency policies including the Green Deal.

As from 1st April 2018 new MEES legislation makes it unlawful to grant or renew an existing lease for properties with an EPC rating of F or G. The MEES regulations will then apply to all existing domestic tenancies by 1st April 2020 and existing non-domestic leases by 1st April 2023. It is the responsibility of the local council to enforce the legislation and should you not comply you are at are a risk of being fined.
