Landlord electrical reports in the Woodchurch area
If you rent out a property in or around Woodchurch or the Kent area, it’s essential to be aware of your legal obligations as a landlord regarding the electrical installations at the property. If you fail to comply, you could face fines of up to £30,000.
Known as EICRs or EIC reports, Electrical Installation Condition Reports are needed for all tenancies under relatively new regulations brought into force in July 2020.
In simple terms, the regulations set out that certain safety standards must be met during any time a property has tenants. These safety standards are tested and approved by EICRs. Landlords should have EICRs carried out at ‘regular intervals’, which is defined by the act as every five years.
