The situation is we have a shop unit we are letting with a self-contained upper part. This shop is one of four in a parade all owned by the same Landlord.
Some tenants choose to sublet the upper parts, some occupy themselves and some use it for storage.
I wondered if The Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020 apply to this type of letting. The Landlord is letting a commercial building on an FRI lease and therefore is not the immediate Landlord of the residential part.
I believe the tenant becomes the Landlord of the upper parts and has to comply with the regulation whilst the Landlord does not.
I am looking for the answer whether or not an EICR would be required as it isn’t a requirement for a commercial tenant.
