We are pleased to invite you to our latest seminar to update you on the impacts of recent legislation to reduce carbon emissions

From April 2018, the Energy Act 2011 puts in place Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) regulations that private landlords will have to achieve before new leases can be entered into. Subject to certain exemptions, it will be unlawful for landlords to let commercial properties that do not have an energy performance certificate (EPC) rating of ‘E’ or above from 1 April 2018.

Are you prepared for the impact of this change?

This seminar considers some of the key aspects for landlord and tenant; addressing where energy performance can be improved; and outlining how the capital costs can be mitigated through the tax system using capital allowances. AECOM’s asset strategy team will focus on the following:

  • Impact on landlord and tenant relationships, operational issues and EPC ratings.
  • A review of building services technology upgrades, with consideration of payback, level of disruption, flexibility in operation and associated energy savings.
  • Available tax reliefs, with a focus on capital allowances including enhanced recovery or payable credits for capital expenditure incurred on low energy technologies.
Should you be in the audience? If you, or your clients, are involved in commercial property improvements, acquisitions or disposals – then keeping ahead in these complex but valuable areas will help improve investment returns and avoid loss of entitlements.
