With the introduction of The Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) 2020 Regulations which came into to force 1st June 2020 , landlords are required by law to maintain the standard of the electrical installation within their rented properties and have a valid Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) or Electrical Installation Certificate (EIC) and / or Minor Works Certificate.
These new Regulations require landlords to have the electrical installations in their properties inspected and tested at least every five years by a person who is qualified and competent. Landlords have to provide a copy of the electrical safety report and corresponding certificates to their tenants, and to the local authority if requested.
