We have been keeping busy carrying out Electrical Installation Condition Reports, [E.I.C.R] for the private landlord sector. This has been in conjunction with Woking Borough Council as well as private landlords. The government has made it a statutory requirement that an E.I.C.R first inspection and testing is carried out—
(i) before the tenancy commences in relation to a new specified tenancy; or
(ii) by 1st April 2021 in relation to an existing specified tenancy.
Any properties with an existing consumer unit [fuse box] looking like this, will likely be in for an update to comply with current standards.
Give us a call and let the professionals give you the advice and guidance required.
