Electrical Safety – Landlord Update
From 1st December 2015 all rented properties will be required to have an electrical safety inspection at least once every 5 years. This will apply to:
- New tenancies starting on or after 1st December 2015
- Current tenants who sign a new lease
Rented properties with existing tenancies will be required to have an electrical safety inspection from 1st December 2016.
Under the new requirement, landlords will have to have fixed wiring (Electrical Installation Condition Report or EICR) checks carried out at least once every five years by an electrician who is a member of SELECT or NICEIC or be able to complete this checklist.
If your property is fully managed by 1LET this is something we can arrange on your behalf. We will remind all landlords nearer the time - however if you have any questions at this moment in time please feel free to get in touch.
