NON-DOMESTIC EPC

The Property Assessment Company provide Non-Domestic EPC for Level 3 and 4 new build and existing buildings.

This includes high street shops, factories, pubs, office blocks, medical facilities and many more settings. We take pride in ensuring that every assessment we do is completed accurately and in line with the latest conventions.

Every Non-Domestic EPC is accompanied with a recommendations report as standard.

Non-Domestic Energy Performance Certificates are required whenever a commercial property is advertised for sale or let. The EPC is valid for 10 years and can be used for multiple transactions. The EPC must meet the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard (MEES). It is unlawful to begin letting a Non-Domestic property with an EPC rating of less than E.

The History of Non-Domestic EPC’s

Non-Domestic EPC’s were introduced on 1st October 2008. This applied to all Non-Domestic new build property and all existing property that was either being sold or let. The EPC shows what Energy Efficiency Asset Rating from A-G a property falls into. A is the most efficient and G is the least efficient.

The EPC is also accompanied by a recommendations report. This details the improvements that can be made to a building and shows the impact the improvements would have on the efficiency of the building.

On 1st April 2018 Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) came into force. This made it unlawful to begin letting a Non-Domestic property with an EPC Energy Efficiency Asset Rating of less than E. This means that the energy efficiency of any Non-Domestic property with an EPC rating of F or G must be improved before it can be let.

In April 2023 MEES will apply to existing leases, it will be unlawful to continue to let any Non-Domestic property that has an EPC rating of F or G where the lease commenced prior to April 2018.

MEES for Non-Domestic EPC Properties (Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard)

Since 1st April 2018 a new lease (including renewal) can only be issued on a Non-Domestic property if the EPC rating is E or better. From 1st April 2023, MEES will apply to all Non-Domestic leases regardless of when the lease commenced.

The penalty for not complying with the Non-Domestic MEES is linked to the rateable value of the property. The maximum penalty is currently £150,000.
