    Selling with tenant in situ - no EIRC

    Hi folks, slightly worried and looking for your view:

    I’m selling my old flat with tenant in situ, and just discovered that we have been non compliant since April on the EIRC - my earlier interpretation had been that we didn’t need to do an EIRC until a new tenancy.

    I am not remediating this before we sell. Does the liability for this expire - in terms of my liability- on completion and transfer to the new Landlord, or could I be liable retrospectively?

    This is not to get out of a responsibility, but it was simply a misunderstanding on my part and were it not for the time pressure to complete I would’ve done before.

    thanks in advance

    I've not found the police sympathetic when explaining I'd misunderstood the 30mph sign and had time pressure.....
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      I dont think you could be retrospectively prosecuted if you were no longer the owner when it came to light that there is no EICR. I would probably get an electrician in however, to inform me what it would cost to get up to standard. You don't want to give the hypothetical buyer reasons to doubt his/her interest in the property.

        Your buyer needs to get their own EICR done before they buy
