Fair Rents (Scotland) Bill or Artificial state manipulation of free market rent?10:34 AM, 6th November 2020

I last had an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) done in July 2018 (17th Edition), with a recommended 5 years before the next inspection.
I have a two story HMO licence. I have 5 student tenants on one AST that are due to start their second year with me on 1st July 2020, so its a new tenancy.
Do I need a new EICR under the new legislation at 18th Edition, or can I use the existing valid one?
I’ve also been told by an electrician that a new EICR is needed at the start of each new tenancy not 5 yearly. That would be almost £300 annually- as opposed to 5 yearly.
Its going to difficult enough to do with Lockdown this year.
