Addressing Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards at British Land

Hillbreak has recently completed an assessment of British Land PLC policies and systems in relation to the Government’s Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (“MEES”). The MEES Regulations will restrict the letting of properties which have poor energy performance ratings from 2018, and are a therefore a key issue to address for responsible landlords and their investors.

We conclude that the company is well prepared for the Regulations and has proactively managed potential risks to value, albeit that continued vigilance and proactive risk management is required. An overview of our findings are captured in this blog, published by British Land.
