Council reminds landlords of minimum energy efficiency standards

Caerphilly County Borough Council is reminding landlords that since April 2020 it is unlawful to rent or continue to rent a domestic property with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating below E.

Landlords renting a property with a current EPC rating of F or G must act immediately to comply with Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) regulations. Those landlords found to be renting properties with an EPC rating of F or G and in breach of the MEES regulation can be fined up to £5,000.

Over the coming weeks the council will be engaging and supporting landlords to ensure they make these important energy efficiency changes to their properties to achieve the required minimum standards.

To find out more about the support available contact the council’s dedicated MEES team on 01443 811375 or by emailing privatesectorhousing@caerphilly.gov.uk
