The reality of MEPS 2018 is now well within sight: By April 2018 a landlord of a commercial building or residential property may not be able to rent out a building that falls below the Energy Performance Rating of E.
40% of the world CO2 comes from buildings. In a recent study of Aberdeen Asset Management’s portfolio by WSP, 31% of the buildings were F & G rated. These will become illegal to rent from April 2018 in England and Wales
If there was ever a time to have an in-depth look at the buildings you own or manage, it is now.
How do you know that your buildings are up to standard?
Are you hoping that the MEPS will pass you by?
Or would you prefer to ensure that your porfolio was compliant and energy-efficient so that you can present an honest and true offer to your current and future tenants and prospect buyers?

- understand its true condition,
- leverage any and all available funding to retrofit,
- constantly invest in the fabric.
