What are my obligations?
Under the Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020, landlords with active tenancies have a legal duty to have all electrical installations tested by a professional every five years. This is called an Electrical Installation Condition Report, or EICR. Under the Health and Safety at Work Act, businesses also have a similar obligation.
What happens if I don't get an EICR?
Any failure to get an EICR could result in a fine of up to £30,000 by your local authority.
