Minimum Energy Efficient Standards (MEES)

Under government legislation, domestic private rented properties are required to meet a minimum energy efficiency standard before they can be rented to tenants. This is defined as an energy performance certificate (EPC) rating of E or above.

The Centre for Sustainable Energy have developed a ‘Support with Mees’ project and information for landlords on the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) can be found here.
