Planning for the future
As from 1st April 2020, all domestic properties with existing tenancies will need to satisfy the requirement of having an EPC rating above an ‘E’ or have a valid exemption. Non-domestic properties will need to satisfy the MEES by April 2023. These deadlines will approach quickly as the 2018 deadline did and therefore when undertaking works to properties the Energy Performance of the property should be kept in mind throughout.
In addition, the Government have previously declared their proposals to raise the standards further, lifting the bands to Band D by 2025, and Band C by 2030.
