I have a rented property with no problems from the electrics over a 10-year period. I had an EICR carried out in December 2011 that was satisfactory. A week ago the electrician EICR checked the house and found some minor problems with the earths plus the need for a new consumer unit and left.
Within 20 minutes my tenant had no ring main. The electrician returned checked the main and left. 10 minutes later the ring main failed.
On the third trip, the electrician identified a neutral open circuit and jury-rigged some extension leads. He quoted £1750 to trace and fix the problem.
In another rented home, I had no problem for 10 years and had a 10-year-old EICR. I again had a recent EICR and a new consumer unit was fitted. I had 4 call-outs due to tripping circuit breakers and was near to buying a new cooker at £650 when the fault went away.
I have one further property that needs an EICR no problems with the electrics at the moment. By next week I would have spent around £3000 on electrics that previously had no problems.
Is this a common landlord problem?
