Energy in the Service Charge – A Dark Art? Experts from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the National Measurement and Regulation Office (NMRO) will provide illumination!

Come along to our next morning of breakfast debate on Thursday 19th November 2015 where we will be joined by RICS and the National Measurement and Regulation Office (NMRO) to discuss tenant recharging for utilities.

Tenant recharging has long been a challenge for commercial landlords and property agents of multi-let buildings. Some buildings will include utility costs within the rent or lease agreement, which is an inaccurate way of apportioning these costs as not all tenants use the same amount of energy. A fair and transparent approach is vital to creating a trusting relationship between a landlord and its tenants.  It is also important to adopt a robust model based on actual energy usage that can withstand tenant scrutiny should a dispute arise.

Peter Forester, chairman of the RICS Service Charge Code Steering Group and the lead author of the RICS Code of Practice for service charges in commercial property, will be discussing best practice policies and procedures in the management and administration of service charges. Leighton Burgess from the NMRO will also be joining the seminar to discuss the importance of using MID approved meters and getting metering right.

The Energy Legislation Forum will follow the presentations at which we will be discussing the consultations relating to Business Energy Tax Reform and the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES).

The agenda will consist of:

08:00   Breakfast
09:00   Seminar
10:30   Coffee and Networking
11:00   Energy Legislation Forum (ELF)
12:00   Close
