Minimum Energy Efficient Standards | Home Insulation Survey

Bespoke MEES Surveys for Landlords

Since 1st April 2018, the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES) has been in force across England and Wales, applicable to privately rented residential and all non-domestic properties.

The MEES is designed to encourage landlords and property owners to improve the energy efficiency of their buildings to a minimum of the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) Rating of E.

At Installers UK, our bespoke in-house survey system enables us to quickly identify poorly insulated properties and recommend energy performance improvements to help meet the new MEES requirements.

For landlords and property owners that require energy efficiency measures, we can determine if your eligible for the government grants via the Governments ECO Scheme and the LA FLEX Scheme. These grants not only save you money on the cost of your energy improvements, they can improve the EPC rating of your property.

 

  • All privately rented residential and non-domestic properties must be MEES-compliant
  • From April 2020 – only properties with a minimum EPC rating of E will be permitted for rental
  • Free Government grants available

Reduce your heating bill for free

The UK’s insulation grants, such as ECO scheme, are government schemes funded by the UK’s largest utility companies, including the so-called ‘Big Six’. These companies are duly obliged to offer grants that can help those in need to enhance the energy efficiency of their homes for good, without costing you a penny.

The grants available with the ECO scheme and various Local Authorities tend to cover many different types of insulation, depending on your property age and type. This includes cavity wall and loft insulation, as well as first time central heating and boiler replacements.

How is the Boiler Grant free?

New A-rated boiler grants are also offered as part of the ECO scheme, helping households with the opportunity for inefficient boilers to be replaced completely free of charge, or heavily subsidised. 

Providing your boiler is more than five-years-old or deemed as faulty and a homeowner, you should be eligible for a new A-rated boiler, installed by Registered GAS SAFE and Governments Trustmark installer and will come with a guarantee.

For older and more in-efficient properties, grant funding is more likely to cover full costs. If you have a very efficient property, You may need to contribute a small amount to cover the cost of the boiler install this will advised to you before any works are carried out.

How long does installation take?

Most properties can have cavity wall and loft insulation installed in just a few hours, although larger households may require an entire day for installation.

Homeowner information

In order to qualify for any of the available government grants, you will need to prove that you are the legal owner of the property, if renting permission will be required from landlord or managing agent, first and foremost .

Benefits of owning a property that meets the MEES

As of 1st April 2018, private residential and commercial landlords cannot renew or grant a new tenancy arrangement for more than six months if the property has an EPC rating of ‘F’ or lower.

For new lets and renewals of tenancies from 1st April 2020, it will be unlawful to lease out a property that breaches the requirement for a minimum EPC ‘E’ rating, unless there is an applicable exemption.

Minimum Energy Efficient Standards (MEES)

From April 2023 – new MEES regulations will be applicable to all lettings, including existing leases.

Here are three key benefits of owning a MEES-compliant property as a landlord:

  • Play your part in improving the energy efficiency of the UK’s housing stock
  • Save your tenants money on energy bills with improved heating and insulation
  • Improved EPC ratings for your property means improved property values

 

What are the consequences for failing to meet the MEES?

  • Landlords in breach of the MEES for less than three months will be liable for 10% of their property’s rateable value, up to a maximum of £10,000.
  • Landlords in breach of the MEES for more than three months will be liable for 20% of their property’s rateable value, up to a maximum of £150,000.
