Electrical insulation checks: The new legislation
Date online: 04/06/2020
From the 1st June, private landlords in England will be required to have the electrical insulation in their rental properties checked by a qualified electrician to ensure their safety.
This legislation will now apply to all new tenancies from the 1st July 2020 and all existing tenancies (i.e. those on periodic tenancies) are required to be inspected by the 1st April 2021
