Entreranno in vigore il 1 aprile 2018 le nuove regole sulle prestazioni energetiche degli immobili in affitto. I proprietari dovranno garantire che gli immobili siano in conformitá a determinati standard energetici prima di poterle affittare o potranno ricevere sanzioni in merito.
Buy-to-Let landlords are facing a ticking time bomb on forthcoming Energy Efficiency legislation where their properties are not up to the minimum standard. UK residential landlords are at risk of financial penalties and being unable to let their properties if they fail to meet minimum energy efficiency standards (MEES) that come into play in 2018, it is claimed. The non-domestic minimum energy efficiency regulations for England and Wales slated for implementation 1st of April 2018 will mean that all relevant properties (AST lets) will have to meet the minimum standard before being let to tenants, except where exemptions apply. In addition, the Tenant’s Energy Efficiency Improvement Regulations, to be brought into force by 1st April 2016 will empower tenants to request consent for energy efficiency improvements, a request that cannot be unreasonably refused by landlords.
