New government legislation states that landlords must ensure every fixed electrical installation is inspected and tested at least every five years by a qualified person. The Regulations also state that a landlord is required to obtain a report of the results of the inspection and test, supply it to each tenant within 28 days and retain a copy until the next inspection is due.
1st July 2020 – Rule applies to new tenancies – As of this date, a landlord must supply a tenant with a satisfactory Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) report prior to the commencement of the tenancy.
1st April 2021 – Rule applies to all existing tenancies – a landlord must supply any current tenants with a copy of a satisfactory EICR report.
Relevant certificates will be issued on completion of works.
