02 Mar Electrical Report Regulations
Navigating New Property Regulations in 2020
In the year 2020, the world grappled with unprecedented challenges. Alongside the global pandemic, significant changes swept the property landscape, especially for landlords. These pivotal changes mandated rigorous inspections of electrical installations within their properties. Effective from July 2020 for new tenancies and set to encompass all existing tenancies by April 2021, these regulations are reshaping property management.
Understanding EICR: The Electrical Installation Condition Report
To grasp the significance of these regulations, it’s essential to delve into the role of the Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR). This comprehensive report assumes a crucial role as the guardian of electrical safety. Its primary objective is to meticulously identify any signs of damage, deterioration, defects, or conditions that could potentially jeopardize the safety of occupants. Furthermore, the EICR report offers invaluable observations and recommendations for improvements.
Landlords’ Responsibilities: Compliance and Safety
Under these recently enacted regulations, landlords bear the responsibility of ensuring that certified companies conduct periodic inspections and testing of electrical installations within their properties. These inspections should occur at intervals not exceeding five years. Consequently, landlords must provide tenants with a copy of the electrical safety report and be prepared to share this report with their local authority upon request.
