Electrical Safety Tests Now Mandatory On Newly Rented Dwellings

From 1st July 2020 an Electric Installation Condition Report (EICR) - colloquially known as an electrical safety test - must be carried out before issuing a new Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST), and by April 2021 they must be carried out for all existing tenancies too. Any remedial work highlighted by the inspection must be carried out too. A copy of the test results must be given to tenants.

As with all the latest legislation from a government that seems determined to drive landlords out of the market, the fines for non-compliance are crazy high - up to £30,000! 

We can get a great price for you for the test. Either order it from within your Visum account, or contact us for more details.
