Landlord electrical Safety Certificates

regulation changes

The Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations came into effect in July 2020. The new regulations mean that landlords in England will need to ensure that electrical installations are inspected and tested by a qualified person and an EICR certificate issued before the beginning of a new tenancy.

For existing tenancies, an electrical safety test will need to be carried out and an EICR issued by 1 April 2021, with regular tests following this as outlined above.

What to expect

​The EICR test will take around 2-3 hours to complete and the power will need to be off during this period.

The comprehensive report covers:

  • Wiring

  • Plug sockets

  • Switches

  • Light Fittings

  • Fuse Board(s)

  • Electric Heating Systems

  • Electric Water Heaters

Once the report is complete you will receive a digital version via email the same day, detailing any observations made.

If any remedial work is required, we will provide a free quote for this alongside the report. You have 28 days from the date of the test to get these rectified and this can be carried out by any registered electrician.
