Electrical certification & surveys for landlords in Staplehurst
If you’re a landlord in the Staplehurst area, you must comply with all mandatory electrical safety requirements.
Known as EICRs or EIC reports, Electrical Installation Condition Reports are needed for all tenancies under a law that only recently came into force during July 2020. The legislation itself is known as The Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020.
What this means is that when a property is occupied under a tenancy, the electrical safety standards must be met. This requires every electrical installation to be tested at regular intervals, unless a report reveals a need for more pressing work to be carried out beforehand. Under the definitions of the legislation, ‘regular intervals’ are every five years.
If you don’t meet these requirements, your local authority could fine you up to £30,000.
