Why do I need an Electrial Installation Condition Report?

The Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector Regulations came into force on 1st June 2020 and apply to all tenancies created on or after that date from 1st July 2020.

These new regulations require landlords to have the electrical installations in their properties inspected at least every 5 years and tested by a person who is qualified and competent. Landlords will also have to provide a copy of the electrical safety report to their tenants as well as to the local authority if requested.

The regulations apply to all new specified tenancies from 1st July 2020 and all existing specified tenancies from 1st April 2021. 'New specified tenancies' is any tenancy created on or after 1st June 2020.

Following the inspection and testing, a private landlord must:

  • Obtain a report from the person conducting that inspection and test, which gives the results of the inspection and test and the date of the next inspection and test.
  • Supply a copy of that report to each existing tenant of the residential premises within 28 days of the inspection and test.
  • Supply a copy of that report to the local housing authority within 7 days of receiving a request in writing for it from that authority.
  • Retain a copy of that report until the next inspection and test is due and supply a copy to the person carrying out the next inspection and test.
  • Supply a copy of the most recent report to any new tenant of the specified tenancy to which the report relates before that tenant occupies those premises; and any prospective tenant within 28 days of receiving a request in writing for it from that prospective tenant.

Local authorities are responsible for enforcing the regulations and can impose a financial penalty of up to £30,000 if they find a landlord is in breach of their duty.
