MEES Or Not To MEES

MEES – a new acronym for Landlords to be concerned about (Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards). Fortunately, the scheme applies to England and Wales only, and is not applicable in Scotland. In England and Wales it is now no longer permissible to let properties with an F & G Energy Performance Certificate rating, without carrying out improvements to the energy efficiency of the property. In Scotland we have the Non Domestic equivalent in the shape of the Section 63 Regulations, which at this time, only apply to properties in excess of 1,000sqm (10,750sqft). 

If you have any questions regarding energy efficiency, please contact William Mair.

Schedule Some Protection

  

3 April 2018 – Over the last few months we have carried out a number of Schedule of Condition instructions. This type of survey is used  to benchmark the condition of commercial properties at the beginning of a lease. This acts to provide a level of protection to the new Tenant. Commissioning  a Schedule of Condition can reduce the exposure to excessive Dilapidations costs in the long term. To discuss any Landlord and Tenant matter contact Paul Reaney.
