LANDLORD CERTIFICATES / EICR's
Having your wiring at home inspected and tested is important but maintaining wiring and equipment in safe working order is a legal requirement for Landlords. For example, the Housing (Scotland) Act imposes a duty on private landlords to carry out electrical safety inspections, and they must ensure that a rented property meets the 'repairing standard' at the start of and throughout any tenancy. Having an 'Electrical Installation Condition Report' carried out can help meet this obligation.
