    Electrical certificate

    Hi Just read there has been an amendment stating tenancy starting from 1st June need a electrical certificate and not 1st July as previousy stated can anyone give any clarity on this and also if plastic fuse boxes are permitted

    The answer to the first is that no one is sure, because the legislation isn't clear.

    The answer to the second is, probably, that it depends on how the electrician prioritises the issue.
    It doesn't meet the current spec, but is safe, so it should be noted as C3 which is not compliant but no action is required and should therefore pass.
    When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
    Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

      Now Concerned as had a tenancy start in June, thought had a year to get a certificate done. So as of next week I may be non compliant ?. Why cant they make all this clear to avoid this happening ?

        I think that 1 June is what the regulations have always said, but its Govt guidance that has been getting it wrong. See here: https://nearlylegal.co.uk/2020/06/th...-safety-dance/

        I would just get one done as soon as is practicable. I doubt the enforcement agencies will take any action in the circumstances and being in breach doesnt invalidate a s21 notice.

          Hang on I had in my mind July 1st? With existing tenancies started before then requiring one before next April.

            I'm afraid that's down to the quality of legal drafting and Govt guidance at the moment.
