I have a general query and sorry if this is an obvious one. Are landlords allowed to undertake basic electrical changes ie swap a pendant, swap a cracked socket or faulty socket?
I have been asked to undertake a few accreditation inspections and all is fine, but they have requested that I provide double sockets where singles are.
I have been undertaking my own electrics for over 20years and have 2 friends who I have worked with on 2nd fixes so am capable of wiring sockets etc but am I legally allowed? I can’t find any clear guidance online
Where new runs or plugs are required I am leaving well and truly to an electrician to complete
Also, if I undertake any electrical work do I need a new EICR?
Thanks in advance for any advice
