The Government have recently proposed new EPC regulations which will change the MESS, which are planned to take effect in 2025. The new EPC regulations state that all rental properties in England and Wales must have an EPC rating of ‘C’ or above. These proposed changes will be phased in, the new regulations will be introduced for new tenancies first from 31 December 2025 and will subsequently apply to all tenancies from 31 December 2028. It is also proposed that the penalty for not having a valid EPC will be raised from £5,000 to £30,000 from 2025.
