We are glad to hear that the Government is now providing dates for when they will be enforcing mandatory electrical safety checks in the private rented sector. Currently all landlords are made aware that they are responsible for the safety of the electrics within the legal HHSRS (Housing and Safety Rating System) compliance.  Bringing this to the forefront of the sector with specific obligations, similar to a landlord gas safety inspection will become clearer for landlords to understand and adhere too.

We are proud to be one of the few agents who have been working with our landlords over the recent years with the majority of the properties managed by our agency already having satisfactory EICR reports, with our agency policy of insisting on these upon re-letting. 

Electrical safety checks will have to be carried out in all private rental properties in England, according to Regulations now laid in Parliament. The Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020 look set to become law from April 1 this year, initially applying to all new tenancies in England and from 1 April 2021 for existing tenancies.

The new legislation confirms that landlords must ensure every fixed electrical installation is inspected and tested at least every five years by a qualified person.  Copies of the report will have to be provided to prospective tenants on request and given to new tenants before they move in. Upon request, the report must be provided to the local housing authority within seven days (it has been mentioned that and any remedial work required must be completed within 28 days, or sooner if specified in the report, this is currently yet to be finalised.)

Enforcement is by the local authority, which can order that work be done. Failure could result in a civil penalty of up to £30,000.

The Regulations require local housing authorities to enforce the rules and they have the power to arrange remedial action.  Breaches of the Regulations can result in the local housing authority imposing a penalty of up to £30,000

What is an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)

It is a periodic inspection report on a property’s safety relating to its fixed wiring. This report has also been labelled as the ‘Landlord Safety Test’ or ‘Homebuyers Test’ and should be conducted by a qualified electrician.  During an EICR, the consumer unit (or fuse board), wiring and electrical accessories are thoroughly tested and inspected for faults or deviations from the Wiring Standards.

Why do I need an EICR?

The main purpose of an EICR is to check the condition of an installation, detecting and recording any factors that might affect safety.

Faulty and old wiring is one of the main causes of electrical fires in the home but you can reduce the risk of a fire by regularly checking your cables, switches and sockets, to check their condition.
