MEES REGULATIONS AND ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES
We can provide advice on compliance with MEES (Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards) Regulations, covering energy efficiency and likely impact on property transactions, including lease renewals and rent reviews – an increasingly important area that cannot be overlooked. We can also review leases to ensure they target sustainable future measures, including energy efficiency, to promote greener leases and meet recognised ESG (Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance) criteria.
WHAT ARE MEES Regulations?
MEES Regulations provide a framework within which properties are measured to assess their energy efficiency using Energy Performance Certificates.
HOW OUR CHARTERED SURVEYORS CAN HELP
Future ownership and occupation of commercial buildings including industrial units, offices and shops, will require much greater scrutiny of the carbon output and energy consumption by a building, the implications of alterations and a properties overall green credentials. The impact of these factors will affect both the long-term costs, the level of rent and the perceived profile associated with individual buildings, in assessing sustainability. The balance of these issues between landlord and tenant will become increasingly more focused. Issues covering legal requirements, apportionment of costs and setting agreed and shared objectives, are all items that we can assist with.
