The Electrical Safety Standards in The Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020
New Legislation introduced June 2020 places a legal requirement upon Landlords and letting agents to ensure the Electrical Safety Standards in all private rental dwellings are met.
The requirement is that a current Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is in place for all new tenancies from 01/07/20 and all existing tenancies require this be put in place prior to 01/04/21.
The 'Report' must be conducted in accordance with British Standards BS7671:2018 and any deficiencies identified within the report must be addressed within a period of 28 days.
A duty is placed upon the Landlord to ensure that those ordered to undertake the Inspection and Testing of the installation are QUALIFIED and COMPETENT.
Fines for not conforming to these Regulations can be charged unto £30,000.
