Landlords Electrical Certificates

Landlords Electrical Certificates

Safe and Secure Electricians can assist all landlords with complying with the latest regulations.

Five Yearly Electrical Checks

From 1st June 2020, private landlords in England will be required to have the electrical installation in their rental properties checked by a qualified electrician to ensure that they are safe.

This means that:

Electrical installations must be inspected and tested prior to the start of a new tenancy from 1st July 2020.
Checks must be carried out on any existing tenancies by 1st April 2021.

These checks must then be carried out on a five yearly basis.

A copy of the most recent electrical safety condition report (EICR) must be provided to both new and retained tenants.

The landlord is responsible for making sure that the person who completes the check is suitably competent. Using an electrician or firm that is a member of an accredited registration scheme operated by a recognized body will give you the confidence that this has been achieved.
