Is an EICR a legal requirement?

A valid Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is a legal requirement for all landlords in England and Scotland. Rental properties must have an electrical safety check and a valid report every five years.
Tenants must be shown a copy of this report before their tenancy begins. When the tenancy agreement is sent to the tenant for signature, they will also be provided with a digital copy of the EICR, along with other legally required documents. 
EICRs and other legal certificates can be found in the Documents section of the dashboard.
