2. Complete Stage 2.

(see screenshot example, showing 6 x reasons and corresponding required evidence), by registering  which reason and property applies, together with formal and possibly cost based applicable evidence.

 

3.  Stage 3.  You will receive via email, a reference no. confirmation of Exemption.

4.  Stage 4.  You are now able to market for rental or renew a lease, in the normal way using the substandard EPC.  Your Exemption Registration is now a matter of public record for anyone, including your local authority (who enforces MEES) by way of this link and use of your property postcode:
