Welcome to Episode 12 of "Your Lettings Journey". Today, we're shining a spotlight on landlord electrical safety, giving you the lowdown on how to navigate the complex realm of Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICRs).

Strap in as we:

🔌 Uncover the chilling story that led to Part P regulations. 

🔌 Navigate the EICR labyrinth, highlighting the importance of choosing registered electricians over the 'Facebook Trap'. 

🔌 Learn from a real-life landlord's experience who hired an unregistered electrician and faced the repercussions. 

🔌 Decode the intricacies of EICR, their necessity, which properties are exempt, and the potential costs involved. 

🔌 Discuss the changes that could be just around the corner and how to stay prepared.

This is more than just a compliance issue; it's about ensuring the safety and well-being of your tenants. We'll guide you through the entire process, from understanding the legislation and obtaining an EICR for your property to finding a competent, registered electrician.

Remember, the realm of EICRs is still a new territory for single-let properties, having only been introduced in July 2020. So, join us on this illuminating journey as we help you stay on top of the regulations, ensuring you never get caught off guard.
