Do landlords need Electrical Certificates?

The answer used to be no, unless you had an HMO, but since July 2020, it is yes, they are required by law for all private rental properties. The government acknowledged that many landlords already voluntarily provided their tenants with an EICR but stated they wanted to make sure that all landlords followed this good practice.

What is Checked during your Bromley EICR Inspection?

The landlord’s electrical safety certificate covers only the fixed parts of an electrical installation. We will check your consumer unit, fixed wiring to sockets, switches and light fittings. We also check the wall outlets, permanent electrical fittings like light fittings plus the switches themselves. Earthing and bonding will also be checked.

In other words, the EICR tells you and your tenants:

– If the electrical circuits are of good condition and safe to use
– Whether or not there is risk of electric shock
– If any defective electrical work is present
– Recommendations for the further investigation or remedial work needed
– An inspection of the condition of the consumer unit

What If I don’t get an EICR carried out?

Basically, you could be right in the soup! Local authorities now can enforce compliance. If they suspect that a Bromley landlord is in breach of the new regulations, they can demand a copy of the EICR. You must supply this within 7 days. Should the local authority serve a remedial notice, you have either 21 days to submit a written representation if you feel the notice is unwarranted or 28 days to carry out the work. Non-compliance can lead to a penalty of anything up to £30,000.
