As a landlord you have very specific responsibilities regarding the safety of electrical installations in your property. Up to now these responsibilities have been self-regulated and based more on best practice rather than law. However, from July 2020 they are to be mandatory for change of tenants and from April 2021 mandatory for existing tenants.
The original draft of these regulations can be found on the Governments own site:
The implications of this regulation mean that every rented property in England and Wales will need to have regular EICRs produced.
An EICR is an Electrical Installation Condition Report. It is a formal document that is produced following an assessment of the electrical installation within a property. It must be carried out by an experienced qualified electrician or approved contractor. This means they will have taken a course covering periodic inspection and testing and are registered with a scheme provider such as NAPIT plus have a good working knowledge and experience of electrical installations.
During an EICR, an electrician may make a number of electrical observations and will give each one a recommendation code. The observations describe a defect or omission within the electrical installation and the electrician will code each observation according to the level of severity. The observations will be written in a clear way and will be explained to you by the electrician if necessary.
Additionally, under the new regulations, once the test has been completed any remedial work will have to be performed within 28 days of the report.
The penalties for not adhering to the rules are severe and landlords can be fined up to £30,000 for non-compliance so it is worth taking the time to familiarise yourself with the rules.
At Simon Martin Associates we are fully qualified and authorised to carry out these checks and any remedial work for you and can explain anything about your electrics that you don't understand. Please feel free to contact us for prices or advice about this.
