According to software firm Arbnco, around 20% of commercial properties have fallen to an F or G EPC rating, with just under 2 months till the MEPS deadline.
Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) legislation will come into force as of 1st April 2018, prohibiting landlords from letting a property with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of F or G.
With less than two months till the new MEPS legislation, a fifth of commercial properties have been found to fall fowl of the minimum standard.
It has been reported that more than a tenth of E rated properties have fallen to an F or G rating.
If landlords fail to become compliant with the MEPS legislation before the deadline, they could receive a hefty fine of up to £150,000.
It’s not too late, to become compliant!
