In April 2020, the new MEES (Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard) rules will apply to all existing lets. At this point, a Landlord will need an EPC rating of an E or above to let a property.

Even if a tenancy is underway and with no plans to renew, after April 2020, a Landlord will need a EPC rating of E or above.

If a Local Authority believes a landlord has failed to fulfil their obligations under the MEES Regulations, they can serve the landlord with a compliance notice. If a breach is confirmed, the landlord may receive a financial penalty.

Cosy Homes is now able to offer FREE central heating to tenants living in privately rented properties.
