EIRC To Become Mandatory?

The Government has announced mandatory five year electrical installation checks on privated rented houses is going to be introduced.

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has stated its intention to introduce legislation as soon as parliamentary time allows, with letting agents and landlords being given at least six months to familiarise with the new legislation before it comes into force.

A transitional period will apply for two years. In year one, all new private tenancies will be affected and in year two all existing tenancies will come within scope.

If properties already have a valid EICR it will not need to be replaced until five years have passed since it was issued.
