Scrapping of EPC targets - Anna Clare Harper on The Rodcast
The big news from last week was the scrapping of proposed Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards of EPC C+ for properties to be legally rented out from 2025/8.
Rowbacks never look graceful, but in fact, this one makes a lot of sense.
Anna joined Rod Turner on his podcast to talk about the scrapping of planned MEES, with topics including:
Why scrapping planned MEES is likely to be positive for the Private Rental Sector, its renters and the environment
Why our clients, institutional investors, were and are self-regulating, and targeting better than the ex-proposed minimum EPC of C
What other policies would work better than MEES, such as using Council Tax to incentivise upgrades.
