    EICR - Electric Certificate

    Good afternoon,

    Is the new regulations are also valid for ongoing periodic tenancies? I have a tenant who moved in 2019 Dec, and moved to periodic tenancy in 2020 Dec. Should I need an electric certificate for it?

    Yeah, you've needed one since about last April.
    To save them chiming in, JPKeates, Theartfullodger, Boletus, Mindthegap, Macromia, Holy Cow & Ted.E.Bear think the opposite of me on almost every subject.


      Yes, as above . . .. You really should know this.


        Yes, get one asap, which should last the next 5 years, you may need more frequent ones if you have a high turnover of T's in the property, otherwise you just need to get one when the certificate expires.

          One of my tenanted property has an electric ceiling heating. No Gas boilers.
          Just wondered, in case it goes wrong, is there any insurance which can provide cover for this?

          What kind of trades person needs to be contacted to fix if this goes wrong?

          Any one got any clue...

          I rented a top floor flat with ceiling heaters. Only short term for 6 months so not too bad.

          Tempted to call RSPB out as the seagulls were burning their feet on the roof.

          Woman in flat below us never turned hers on so we froze.

          Property is now EPC E and only...

          Come on, it's never going to happen. Bojo is even more keen on the green nonsense than the EU, if that were possible.

          What o/p could do is what I suggested in another thread: Get the fancy storage heaters for the purposes of the EPC, and also install a normal wall heater. Then tenant has...

          BEWARE of LOT 20 products FULL stop.

          Seek advice and guidance from others before going down this route and I would say any heaters with LOT 20 need to have app control too

          These products ARE the work of the devils - so many people can't understand them so waste LOTS of energy....

          Hi, looks like my fear of the ceiling electric heating going bad has come true now.

          If I go for a lot 20 heater/ High heat retention storage heaters - assuming there's a difference between these 2 products, is there a possibility of Gov grant that can cover some of the costs?

          Thanks for your comments / advice - I will certainly be challenging the report, with a bit more confidence now.

          Ferroli was used by our local council for about 5-6 months years ago.

          They binned them and started using Vokera- they install so many they are 'agents' - who do not sell.

          Vokera actually give them parts on a use or return basis (if still sealed etc), they also let the council...

          I tested a flat today and it failed due to IP issues (as well as a host of other stuff)

          In simple terms any hole on the top of a consumer unit should not allow a 1mm wire to get in and other parts are different.
          See the YouTube video below

          The good news is that the IP...

          I have a tenanted flat in Scotland. The property is about 20 years old and part of a fairly large development. The wiring passed the EICR at its last application 5 years ago, but has recently been given a fail because the consumer unit doesn't meet the latest version of BS7671 (18th Edition) (Condition...
