2021 PRS electrical safety standards
The regulations, which applied to new tenancies from July 2020, extend to existing tenancies as of 1 April 2021. If a landlord is found to not have complied with the law - and no attempt to has been made to complete necessary remedial work that was identified - they could face a fine of up to £30,000.
ECA, in partnership with Electrical Safety First, Elecsa and NICEIC, have produced a short video guide for landlords to ensure they are compliant with the new legislation. Electrical Safety First has produced a FAQ resource for checks in privately rented homes, which can be accessed here.
