All commercial properties marketed, sold or leased require a commercial Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). Banks and lenders are now requesting an EPC to demonstrate that their investment is safe from the MEES legislation. The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors are now pointing the MEES regulation out in valuations, meaning that if the standard is not met the valuation is not valid.
Since April 2018, the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) have been implemented to prevent properties from transacting, should a G or F rating be generated. CS2’s Energy and Sustainability team can provide all levels of Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) and also offer EPC Plus Reports, which deliver a cost analysis and best fit solution, tailored to each client.
At CS2, our team of industry experts work closely with landlords, commercial surveyors and investors to minimise risk to property value and yields. We utilise a “stop and think” policy following all EPC Surveys. This means that should an unwanted rating be generated during draft stage, we will work with clients to find a feasible solution.
