Further to my post on minimum energy efficiency standard (MEES) quoted below, the Department for Communities and Local Government have now published updated guidance to domestic landlords and energy performance certificates (EPC's) for the marketing, sale and let of dwellings 

The guidance is intended to help sellers and landlords to understand their responsibilities for making an EPC available when selling or renting out a building, what buyers or tenants should expect when they begin the process of buying or renting a building and when an EPC is required. 

Landlords and homeowners can expect more on energy in the future as the Government continues to implement energy efficiency policies.
