  • The government is committed to the prohibition of lettings of all properties—residential and commercial—which have a low energy performance rating.
  • Within the next four years the letting of buildings with poor energy performance will be outlawed.
  • Around one in six properties will be affected by the ban.
  • Lenders are likely to impose conditions on agreements to provide finance to investors
  • EPC ratings of F or G may mean that no money will be forthcoming.
  • MEES seems to be a necessary step change for meeting UK statutory emissions target.
