Just bringing this back to the top of the discussion. I wonder how many landlords are prepared for this or even worse are not aware of the new legistlation? Properties in England must have an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) before new tenancies are started from 1st July 2020. The checks ensure the property’s electrical fixtures, such as light fixtures and electrical sockets, are safe before the tenant moves in. The EICR must be performed at least every five years for each property. Landlords creating a tenancy without an EICR face fines of up to £30,000. From 1st April 2021, the new requirements will apply to ongoing tenancies that started before 1st July 2020. Similar requirements were approved in Scotland in 2015. Wales has no such requirements to date.
