A survey has revealed landlords lack of awareness towards the Minimum Energy Performance Standards legislation with just over two weeks to go till the deadline!
We are now just weeks away from the Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) legislation deadline, which will make it unlawful for landlords to let a property with an F or G Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating. Landlords could receive fines of up to £150,000 for non-compliance with the legislation.
A survey of 500 people carried out by specialist insurance provider Just Landlords, has found only 4% out of the surveyed were aware of the forthcoming MEPS legislation, and addition to this, just three in 10 people said they knew what their properties EPC rating was.
Since EPC legislation was introduced in 2008, methods used to produce an EPC have become stricter meaning your properties rating could have fallen. We recommend that you check your properties rating to ensure it is compliant with the legislation.
Here at Compliance365, we can help you to achieve compliance with the legislation. We offer an EPC and review service which is skilfully designed to help achieve compliance with MEPS legislation.
After conducting an EPC survey, we utilise our unique 3D modelling service to create ‘what if’ scenario simulations, which legitimately and significantly reduces the number of F and G rated properties.
