What you get from Elextric
Occasional extra costs
We won’t charge you for
Landlords and managing agents operating a HMO will need to ensure that each property complies with the relevant safety standards. The following guide explains what you need to do.
If the property has gas, you must have a ‘Gas Safe’ registered engineer check the gas supply and appliances and produce a Gas Safety Certificate every year. This is a licence condition and a requirement under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998.
You must prove that all electrical appliances are safe – this is a condition of your HMO licence.
Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR, also known as Periodic Inspection Report)
You’ll need registered electrician to inspect the electrical installation and provide a report. This report will cover the wiring, lights and sockets and the consumer unit (the box containing the fuses and circuit breakers). It can also cover the fire detection and emergency lighting system, if required.
EICR These are often known or referred to as home buyer’s surveys or landlord reports. We have extensive knowledge and experience of carrying out fixed wiring tests and the associated certification and frequently test everything from a single domestic property up to commercial installations with many dozens of distribution boards.
