The anticipated standards for the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES)

August 29th 2021  –  We have written to the Business Secretary, Kwasi Kwateng, with reference to the outcome of their consultation on MEES. The letter can be seen here.

Update – October 4th 2021.  We have received a reply which can be seen here.  You will see that it is a very disappointing response, actually telling us nothing, and certainly not allowing us to advise members of what EPC rating they need to achieve, and when.


We have written the Alok Sharma in his role as Chair of COP26 to ask how landlords are supposed to contribute to the cause of COP26 in view of a lightweight, meaningless answer to a straight forward question.  .You can see the letter here.



Update – April 2022.       As we still have no positive response from the Government we have written again to the Business Secretary, Kwasi Kwateng, the letter can be seen here.


Update July 15th 2022, finally received an answer to our letter of April 2022 (above).  The letter can be seen here, and as you can see, doesn’t tell us anything we didn’t know already.  We will wait for the new cabinet and write again.


November 14th 2022 – we have written again to the (new) BEIS secretary, with a copy to the Levelling Secretary (Michael Gove) and Alok Sharma.  It can be seen here.




BEIS minister, Grant Shapps announced £1bn boost for ECO scheme to insulate homes, from April 2023
Landlord association, iHowz, question why it has taken so long, to offer so little, so late, given we are still waiting for the new standards
