New Electrical Safety Regulations April 2021

New Electrical safety regulations come into force on 1 April 2021.

The regulations apply to all private rented sector properties (including HMOs) in England and are designed to improve tenant safety.

In brief, landlords must ensure every fixed electrical installation is inspected and tested at least every five years by a qualified person. The regulations also state that a landlord is required to obtain a report of the results of the inspection and test, supply it to each tenant within 28 days and retain a copy until the next inspection is due.
