Electrical Safety Inspection Report | Electrical Safety Certifications (EICR)
If you are renting out a property in England, any tenancy you create or renew on or after July 1st 2020 will be subject to an electrical inspection (EICR Certification) performed by a qualified person. Renewals in this case include statutory periodic tenancies that are created at the end of a fixed term on or after this date.
The EICR certification will be valid for 5 years and will state if your electrics within the property are “Satisfactory” or “Unsatisfactory” and if any remedial works may be required to bring it to a “satisfactory” stage.
The EICR must be given to all of the tenants before they occupy the property.
When you replace the EICR you must provide them with a copy of the new report within 28 days of the inspection. If a tenant requests a copy of the EICR in writing, you must also provide them with one within 28 days. Where the local authority requests the EICR you must provide them with a copy of it within seven days or face potential penalties. Any prospective tenants who request a copy in writing must be provided one within 28 days.
