The deadline for meeting the new Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) falls on Sunday 1st of April (Easter Sunday), but according to ARLA there are still thousands of landlords either not aware of the new rules or haven’t as yet done anything about them.
From next Sunday all rented properties on new lettings (including renewals) will have to comply with the MEES regulations or face a heavy fine.
Every buy-to-let property will have to meet the minimum energy efficiency rating and obtain an energy performance certificate rating of “E” or above, but it is evident that there are still many thousands of landlords with rental properties that fall into the F or G ratings bands.
With Sunday’s deadline looming, some landlords will face fines of up to £4,000 when they come to re-let or renew their tenancies, or otherwise face losses through having their property stood empty while it’s brought up to standard.
Any landlord in this position should be making plans now to bring their rental up to standard, otherwise they could also face difficulties when it comes to mortgage applications and renewals.
If you need help bringing your rental property(s) up to the new specification please feel free to book a consultation with a member of our team
